GREENVILLE CO., SC (WSPA) – A man stole a vehicle with a one-year-old left in the car, according to the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office.
Now the alleged car thief and the child’s mother face charges.
It happened around 3 p.m. Wednesday at Spinx at the corner of Highway 418 and Fairview Road.
Deputies say 21-year-old Michael Tyler Shelton has been charged with kidnapping and petit larceny.
On Thursday, Shelton remained in jail at the Greenville County Detention Center after a judge denied bond.

She is accused of leaving her baby alone inside the car while she went into the gas station, deputies say.
