PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Police in Philadelphia say a thief stole a minivan with a 4-month-old baby inside but dropped off the child in front of a home about 8 miles away.

Sgt. Eric Gripp says the white minivan was stolen just before 8 a.m. Monday in West Philadelphia. The baby was found about 30 minutes later.

The child appeared to have no injuries and was taken to a hospital as a precaution.

The van and the suspect haven't been located.
