BEAUMONT, Texas (AP) - Police called to a Beaumont variety store by a burglar alarm overnight found a toddler inside, playing with the toys.
A police statement says a store surveillance video showed the unidentified boy, thought to be age 2 or 3, tried one of the front doors to a Family Dollar store about 3 a.m. Monday, only to find it locked. But the second door was unlocked and the child went inside.
That triggered the silent alarm that brought police to the store.
The child remains in custody until officers can identify him and locate a parent.
