GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Grand Rapids police are asking for tips to identify two suspects who stole a vehicle with kids inside from the parking lot of a convenience store.

It happened Tuesday afternoon at the Bottle House at 2208 S Division Ave. Investigators say the owner left the vehicle running while they went inside the store when it was taken with the children still sitting in the back seat.

The vehicle was found a short time later with the kids inside.

By the time police found the vehicle, the suspects had already left the area.

Anyone who can identify the suspect is asked to call Grand Rapids Detective Jamie Fugate at 616-456-3825 or jfugate@crcity.us. Tips can also be given to Silent Observer at 616-774-2345.
