News Release
Vehicle Stolen With Child Inside Results In Kidnapping Arrest - 04/08/23

On 4/8/2023 at approximately 0749 hours, deputies were dispatched to a kidnapping at 1501 NE 99th Street. The victim and reporting person told 911 that an unknown male had taken his 2022 Audi, which had his one month old child in the back seat. Deputies came into the area and located the vehicle near NE 88th Street and Highway 99 with the child still inside. The suspect, later identified as Mario Andrews, had already fled the area and was not located at that time. The child did not appear to be injured, but was checked by medics and was provided back to the parents.  A male was detained by deputies for a brief period then released when we determined he was not involved. 

Later in the day, the victim reported their credit cards being used at Vancouver Mall and Sheriff's Office deputies as well as Vancouver Police Department officers responded. Mario Andrews was arrested for theft of a motor vehicle, kidnapping in the second degree and reckless endangerment. Vancouver Police Department also arrested him for possession of a stolen motor vehicle and attempt to elude from an earlier case.
