now an amazing story! take a look at this... surveillance video captured the moments before a man stole this car... 2 kids were inside that car at the time it was stolen! that crime happened back in feburary... now.. police are asking for your help in finding the man responsible. they say it happened at a dollar general in terre haute.. and that's where we find news 10's garrett brown.. he joins us now live with more on the investigation...and how you can help. at 5-- i told you about a mother who was shopping at this dollar general at twelve points... she left her 5 and 6 year-old in the car while she was shopping. that's when police say a man took the car with kids still inside! everyone is okay... but its still something one mother said should never happen. <it's a fear no one wants to experience. having your vehicle stole with your children. local mother rachel fishback says she can understand leaving the car running to warm it up. but never leaving her child in it. "i think as a mother i can understand somebody doing that but i also know the importance of no matter how quick you go in, you always have to take your child." the terre haute police department is still looking into what happened.. but it's a situation that isn't uncommon. especially when it comes to people trying to warm up their vehicles. "almost fifty percent of stolen vehicles happen while their running predominantly in the winter time. there was one not too long ago at baeslers market where a gentlemen left his vehicle running cause his dog was in the car. he was in baeslers for a quick minute came out and his vehicle was gone." "that extra time it takes to get your child out of the car and keep them safe with you is always worth it.">
