GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. (WSPA) – A man will face charges in Greenville County after a baby was kidnapped and a vehicle was stolen early Friday morning.
7NEWS previously reported that Greenville County Sheriff Deputies responded at 3:51 a.m. to a stolen black 2013 Nissan Altima at the QuikTrip located at 1509 Grove Road.
Deputies said the child’s father went inside the QuikTrip located on Grove Road while the 8-month-old girl was still in the car.
According to the sheriff’s office, the suspect, later identified as 25-year-old Jalin Michael Jones, dropped the baby girl off at Golden Strip School of Music at 4:04 a.m.
The baby was found a little before 7 a.m. by a music school employee.
On Saturday, investigators narrowed their list of suspects down to Jones. The very next day, Jones was arrested by the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office on a domestic violence charge, carrying a $2,500 bond.
Jones is charged with kidnapping and grand larceny in Greenville County. He is currently being held in the Spartanburg County Detention Center and will be moved to Greenville County to face charges once his bond is sorted.
