TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - A toddler is safe and a woman in jail after a bizarre incident in east Toledo overnight.

According to police, Danielle Martinez was driving around with some people in a van around 2 a.m., when the driver decided to stop at a 7-Eleven on Woodville Road.

While the van owners were inside the store, Martinez took off with the van. A two-year-old boy and a man who was passed out were inside.

Police caught up with the vehicle a short time later on Parker Avenue.
