Thief steals van warming up, leaves pregnant woman stranded
Early Tuesday morning around 2:30, Sonia Duarte thought she was in labor and her husband started the family van, planning to head to the hospital. But a car thief took advantage of the situation and stole it, leaving the pregnant woman stranded. Sonia says, "I just prayed to God that everything would go okay. They say that when something bad happens it's because something good is going to come." Sgt. Wayne Ruffner says, "The broadcast came out and luckily three of our deputies were in the area. A chase ensued and the vehicle was spiked."
