KFDM: Police say at 2:59 a.m. Monday, officers responded to an alarm at the Family Dollar Store. Officers arrived and began to check the building. They discovered that one of the two front doors was not secured. There was no sign of forced entry. Police went inside the store and found a four-year-old child playing with toys in the store.
BEAUMONT, Texas Police said store surveillance video showed the unidentified boy trying to open 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.
Detective Randy Stevens said the child apparently unlocked a door at his nearby home, got out, then crossed a multilane street to reach the store.
A canvass of the neighborhood turned up a family member searching for the child.
CPS spokeswoman Shari Pulliam said Child Protective Services claimed oversight of a 4-year-old boy during a review of the incident. The boy will be allowed to stay with other relatives, not the parents, during the CPS review period.
