NEWCASTLE, Okla. (KFOR) – Authorities say two people have been arrested following an Amber Alert on Wednesday morning.
Officials say it all started when a woman went to Newcastle Casino around 4 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 22. Investigators say the mother left her Lincoln MKX running with the keys in the ignition, and her 10-year-old son in the car.
A short time later, authorities say a man got into the car and took off.
According to the Amber Alert, the suspect was seen driving the stolen vehicle southbound on the H.E. Bailey Turnpike around 4:21 a.m.
After the Amber Alert was issued, a bystander spotted the stolen vehicle at a store near S.W. 15th and Czech Hall Road.
Within four minutes of that 911 call, the store was swarmed by police from various departments.
Investigators arrested 36-year-old Seth Grant.
Maj. Adam Flowers, with the Canadian County Sheriff’s Office, told KFOR that the child’s mother was also arrested on a complaint of child neglect.
The boy is currently with the Chickasaw Lighthorse Police Department.
If you have any information on the case, call 911.
