Police say a 6-year-old girl is safe after a thief drove off in a car while she was still inside.
Police say the girl's mother had finished visiting a friend at the Oak Meadows condominiums in Taylorsville Friday night and put the girl in her car.
Officials say the mother realized she forgot something in the condo, and headed back.
Unified police Lt. Justin Hoyal says that's when the suspect jumped in the car and drove off.
Authorities say police found the vehicle and the child about five minutes later.
Witnesses told police the man got out of the vehicle and fled in another vehicle that pulled up to pick him up.
