Van thief drops filched baby at to-go counter

They say the baby boy slept through the incident and was soon reunited with his mother.

James Ku told police a man entered his family's Wings R Us restaurant around noon Tuesday and placed an infant in a car seat on the counter. The man said he found the child. Before fleeing, he told Ku to call 911.

Police brought the mother by less than two minutes after Ku called 911. She said she had left the baby in the minivan while she dropped another child at daycare, then returned to find the van gone. Ku said she wept when her baby was returned safely.

Police are still seeking the victim's 2006 blue Chevrolet Uplander.
