Winters, TX, police officers are being credited with saving a 4-year-old child from a kidnapping during a traffic stop early Thursday morning.
A report from the Winters Police Department states a vehicle was pulled over for speeding around 1:00 a.m., and when officers approached the vehicle, they saw the 4-year-old and an adult male inside.
After running the man’s information, they learned he had an active warrant for kidnapping the child out of Oklahoma in July. He was immediately taken into custody, Everything Lubbock reports.
Police say he was the child’s biological father, but he took her and fled after an emergency protective order was issued.
