CRESTVIEW, Fla., April 27, 2020—A car was stolen at a convenience store in Crestview today with an infant inside.
Sabrina L. Livingston, 26, hopped into a Cadillac while the owner and her boyfriend stood just a few feet away at the Tom Thumb store at 1098 S. Ferdon Blvd. just after 3 p.m.
The couple was selecting a movie from a RedBox outside the store when Livingston drove off with the 1-year-old child.
They tried to get into the car and stop Livingston, but were unsuccessful.
An Okaloosa County Sheriff’s deputy, heading north on Ferdon Boulevard saw Livingston, who was headed south, turn east on Interstate 10 toward Walton County.
The deputy turned and pursued the Cadillac, notifying the Florida Highway Patrol of the crime.
Walton County Sheriff’s deputies near exit 70 in Mossy Head, saw the car leave I-10 and head north on State Road 285.
The driver turned into the Raceway gas station near the intersection of SR 285 and U.S. 90 where she was detained by WCSO, just 24 minutes after stealing the car.
The baby was not injured in the incident.
Livingston, from Crestview and who also has a Texas address, is charged with grand theft auto and kidnapping while committing a felony.
