AURORA, Colo. — The child who was inside a car when it was stolen from a gas station in Aurora has been found safe, police said.

An Amber Alert that was issued late Sunday has been deactivated. The suspect, identified as Kirk Abercrombie, was booked into the Aurora Detention Center Monday on charges of 2nd-degree kidnapping and felony motor vehicle theft, police said.

The stolen car and the 6-year-old girl were found late Sunday in Weld County, according to police, about 75 miles away from the intersection of Iliff and Havana where the car was stolen around 9 p.m. Sunday.

That car had been left running when it parked in front of the gas station store, police told Denver7's Claire Lavezzorio.
