An Oregon mom got a lesson in parenting from the criminal who stole her car.


The mom left her 4-year-old child in the backseat in an unlocked car, with the vehicle running while she ran into a supermarket.

While she was inside the store a car thief jumped in the car and took off, not realizing a child was inside.

The thief turned around and went back to the store to drop off the child and scolded the mother for being so “irresponsible,” and even threatened to call the cops.

An Oregon mother is grateful to have her 4-year-old son back after a thief stole her car with the child inside but came back to return the boy and scold his mother.
Police responded to Basics Meat Market around 9 a.m. Saturday in Beaverton, Oregon. Crystal Leary told them she had gone into the store to quickly grab a couple of items and left her 4-year-old son in the car with the engine running.

While she was inside, a man got into the car and drove off with the boy inside.

Leary says the suspect then drove back to the store and yelled at her, threatening to call the police because she left her son in the car. He ordered her to get the boy out of the car then drove off again.

The boy was not harmed during the ordeal.

“As moms, we get really busy, and we think we’re just running in for a second. This is just a perfect example of letting our guards down and how terribly it could have ended,” Leary said. “So, I’m just thankful that he’s OK. It was so stupid, and I’ll never do that again. But it’s that split second decision that could just change everything.”

I don’t know who I’m more disgusted with – the thief or the parent who just left her kid out as “bait.”


This is the same type of woman who would leave her child or pet in a car with the windows rolled up on a 100-degree day and then say “whoops, I was busy and forgot…”
