HARRIS COUNTY, Texas– On Wednesday, the Texas Department of Public Safety for the Southeast Texas Region stepped in to save the day for a baby who was in a stolen vehicle in Harris County last week, according to its social media.

A driver and two passengers were arrested last week after they evaded arrest from DPS Troopers in a Cadillac that was reported stolen, according to the post. DPS did not publicly name the driver.

During the arrest, Troopers saw a 5-month-old child in the vehicle, according to DPS.

Most of the Troopers on the scene are fathers and began immediately caring for the baby.

Read the full statement from DPS below:

A driver and two passengers found themselves jailed last week in Harris County after fleeing from Troopers in a Cadillac that was reported stolen.
During the arrest, Troopers saw a five-month-old child in the vehicle. As many of the Troopers on-scene were fathers, they immediately began caring for the baby. Once things settled down, the child found caring arms and a relaxing bottle.
When Troopers learned the family had only a few clothes for the child, they knew they had to act and donated clothes from some of their own children.
In the end, we are thankful no one was hurt and the child was safe and unharmed. #TexasTan
