Terrifying night for toddler and puppy inside stolen car

A FOUR year old and a puppy were both in a car when it was stolen in Gladstone last night

The vehicle was stolen from the car park of the Dawson Road sports complex just after 10pm on Friday night, as the owners were locking up.

The car was turned on and the boy was sitting in the back of the car with his eight-week-old puppy.

After the car was stolen from the car park, the driver picked up a female passenger before dropping the boy off alone at a fast food restaurant on Glenlyon Rd at 10.15pm.

No one was physically injured during the incident.
