The Fort Wayne Police Department responded to the 1100 block of Hurd Street in reference to a vehicle that had just been stolen with four children inside the vehicle.  As officers arrived on the scene, they were advised that while the vehicle was left unattended, someone got in and drove off with the children inside (ages 5, 4, and a set of 2-year old twins). The vehicle was located a short time later within blocks of the incident with the children safe inside the vehicle and unharmed. The children were then reunited with their mother. There is no suspect information at this time and the incident continues to be investigated by the Fort Wayne Police Department.


The Fort Wayne Police Department reminds everyone to NEVER leave infants/small children unattended or alone in vehicles.
