Suspect jailed after car stolen with baby inside

The man suspected of taking a black Kia Rio with a baby inside at a RaceWay gas station near West Palm Beach early this week was arrested Wednesday.

Marquise Hudson, 23, faces charges of child kidnapping, grand theft auto and burglary.

Investigators said after he stole the car early Tuesday morning with a 5 1/2-month-old infant, which he later dropped off unharmed at a Sunoco gas station on State Road 7 and Okeechobee Road.

Deputies later tracked the stolen vehicle to Sansbury Way and Okeechobee Blvd.

PBSO did not reveal many details about Hudson's arrest but in a tweet said it was thanks to his mother that her son was in custody.
