VicPD are asking the public’s help in reuniting a young mother and son with their vehicle after it was stolen Thursday. Officers are pointing to the distinct Batman car seat in the back as a key thing for members of the public to be on the lookout for.
The vehicle, a red 1990 2-door Nissan Sentra with license plate 390 MWV, was stolen from behind a business on Herald Street yesterday afternoon.
The vehicle itself is not exceedingly valuable, but the car seat was a special gift for family’s young son. The owner, a single mom and small business owner, isn’t in a position to be able to replace the car seat.
UPDATE From VicPD:
Holy car recovery Batman! Thanks for all your help. They’ve got the car seat back they need, the car seat they deserve.
