Teenage girl arrested for stealing van

A teenage girl faces charges for stealing a van with a child in the backseat.

Ed Aldridge stopped at a Stevensville gas station last month and left his van running with his 8 year old daughter Kaelie asleep inside.

When Aldridge returned, his van and daughter were gone. Luckily, Kaelie was later found unharmed at a nearby motel.

Berrien County police say the 16-year old teen has been arrested and faces charges for unlawfully driving a vehicle away.

They say she claims to have taken the van to get her friend and herself back to the Benton Township Area.
