A Lubbock mother had a scare after a man tried to steal her van with her children inside.
The woman left her car running just before 11:00am in the parking lot of the Stripes Convenience Store on 82nd and I-27 while she made quick purchase inside. While she was inside a man attempted to steal the vehicle by jumping into the driver’s seat. However the woman’s young daughter took the keys out of the ignition, and the man fled. The girl says she learned the tactic in safety programs at school.
Police are still looking for the man. If you have any information, contact crime line at 741-1000.
