SAN ANTONIO - A 9-year-old boy is safe after police say he was kidnapped and almost trafficked to another city, but police were able to track him down just in time.

Things ended around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday at an H-E-B on the South Side off Goliad Road and Southeast Military Drive.
Police said the boy was kidnapped in the downtown area and authorities were immediately notified along with Homeland Security.
San Antonio Police's ROPE officers followed several leads that brought them to this store where the suspect and the boy were going to be.
SAPD officers were called to assist the arrest. They were able to block in a car in the parking lot and recovered the kidnapped boy and placed a man under arrest.

Smells like an illegal needed a kid to get across the border.
Either that or a pervert wanted some dessert.
Great work by the police.
Wonderful that they were able to save the boy.
Indeed! Kudos to them.
If you get arrested for DUI they publish your name. I guess kidnapping and human trafficking aren’t serious enough for that.
Hopefully, he’s singing and giving Homeland his boss’ name and that boss’ name and on up the ladder.
Maybe he just Self Identified as the kids father??
