The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office has released new video showing a man they described as the suspect in the theft of a car that had a baby inside on February 16.
Police said the surveillance video from a neighbor’s doorbell camera in Valrico shows the man suspected of stealing an SUV with one-year-old Tinnley West inside.
The missing infant was found safe in her car seat inside the car, in Brandon, Florida, several hours after the vehicle was stolen, police said.
“We are committed to finding this individual who caused panic and fear for a family and an entire community by carelessly stealing a vehicle with an infant inside,” said Sheriff Chad Chronister.
The sheriff indicated that his office believed that the perpetrator targeted the vehicle and did not intend to kidnap the child. Credit: Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office via Storyful
