Greencastle Man Steals Vehicle with Children Inside

During the evening hours of Sunday December 4th an auto theft and kidnapping occurred in the parking lot of Grace Variety Store located on North Lynhurst and West 10th Street. The owner of the vehicle advised the police that she went into the store and left her two children inside the car while they were sleeping. The woman finished shopping and realized that she did not have enough money on her to pay for her groceries. When she went back outside to her car to get her purse she found that her car was missing and by extension her two children ages five and two. The woman notified the store employee and then the police were called. Speedway Police were given the description of the vehicle and relayed that information to the surrounding police departments. Approximately an hour later the stolen Gray Toyota Camry was located by the IMPD near Lafayette and West 16th Street. Police arrested Allen Dryden, age 29 of Greencastle for Auto Theft, Kidnapping and Confinement.
