Thief takes car with sleeping 6-year-old inside

BAMBERG, N.C. - A 6-year-old South Carolina boy is safe and back with his family after sleeping through an ordeal that left his mother terrified.

Jill Goolsby stepped into a Bamberg gas station to pay Sunday, leaving her son Braxxton asleep in the back seat.

Moments later she turned to see the car was gone.

As quickly as I handed her the money and looked away from my car to hand her the money and looked to see the pump and that's how quick he had jumped in and left," Goolsby said.

Security video shows a man walking to her car, jumping in it, and driving away.

Goolsby and the gas station attendant quickly called police.

About an hour later, another 911 call came in.
