SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- A teenager and toddler were sleeping in an SUV when an intoxicated woman stole the vehicle from a Safeway parking lot Saturday afternoon, Springfield Police said.
The incident started at around 3:50 p.m. Saturday when a woman, later identified as Tamela Trice, 23, of Springfield, stole an SUV with a 17-year-old and a 2-year-old sleeping in the car, Springfield Police Sergeant Kirkpatrick said.
Trice crashed into a fence in the Coin Laundry parking lot, got out of the car and tried to wipe her fingerprints from the steering wheel, Sgt. Kirkpatrick said, leaving the teenager and the 2-year-old unharmed in the car.
Thanks to a couple of observant witnesses at Safeway, police found Trice's address by tracing the plates of the van she drove to the store.
Trice was booked at the Lane County Jail on two counts of first-degree kidnapping, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, DUII, resisting arrest and two counts of reckless endangering.
