ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- St. Petersburg Police say two thieves stole a car with a baby inside -- then dropped the infant onto a nearby doorstep and ran.
Officials say the victims parked their Toyota Highlander outside of church on Sunday and were unloading items into the church. The victims briefly left the Toyota unlocked with the keys in the ignition.
Their 10-month-old baby girl was in her car seat.
During the unloading, the thieves took the car.
About three minutes later, one of the suspects dropped the baby in her car seat onto a nearby home's doorstep. That was caught on surveillance video.
The baby was unharmed and still sitting in her car seat. The owner of the home called police.
Officers recovered the Toyota and are still searching for the thieves.
