MURRAY, Utah, Feb. 12, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) — Police in Murray are looking for a man suspected of stealing a vehicle with two children in it Friday afternoon.

The incident occurred at 2:30 p.m. in the parking lot of the Comfort Inn, 5300 S. College Drive, while the children’s parents were inside the hotel and the children, both younger than 10, were waiting in the backseat of the vehicle, said Officer Gruendell, with the Murray Police Department.
