MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – Authorities have made an arrest in a startling case of a stolen vehicle.
Officers spent several weeks searching for the suspect who stole a car with a 9-month-old baby inside.
On Thursday, police arrested Jeanette Munoz for the crime.
She appeared before a Miami-Dade judge for the first time on Friday.
According to police, Munoz got into the car while the owner was inside a laundromat and told a 10-year-old child in the front seat to get out before she took off with the vehicle.
It was that 10-year-old who later identified Munoz to police from a lineup.
This alleged crime took place on June 9 near 111th Avenue and West Flagler Street.
Munoz dropped off the baby at a Chinese restaurant in Sweetwater.
The child was quickly reunited with his or her mother.
Munoz is facing charges that include grand theft and false imprisonment of a child. Her bond was set at more than $50,000.
