Woman ‘freaked out’ after stealing car with kids inside

Police say a Fair Grove woman “freaked out” when she noticed two children in the back seat of the car she had just stolen.

Cynthia Brown, 37, was charged with three felonies stemming from the auto theft in Springfield that led to an Amber Alert for a 13-month-old girl.

On that day, the father of the children parked his car – leaving it unlocked with the keys in the ignition – and entered a Commercial Street business while Harmony J. Blue and her 4-year-old brother stayed in the car.

According to documents filed in Greene County court, Brown was prompted by her husband to jump in the driver’s seat and flee the area.

The woman stopped the car at 1213 W. State St. and dropped off the 4-year-old, along with the father’s cell phone. Police say Brown eventually abandoned the vehicle with the baby still in the back seat Full Article
