Oklahoma County prosecutors charge a man with stealing a car with a 4-month old baby inside.

18-year old Kelly Klesath is being held without bail in the Oklahoma County jail on charges of kidnapping and larceny. Oklahoma City Police say Klesath and another man stole the car outside an Oklahoma City elementary school last Friday, with the child inside.

The state issued an Amber Alert and officers quickly found the stolen car and arrested Klesath. The baby was later found abandoned in the yard of a vacant home, just fine.

The second man has not been arrested.
