THORNTON, Colo. — A police officer in Thornton made a surprising discovery when he stopped a stolen vehicle.

The driver had his infant son in the vehicle.

“Really?” the Thornton Police Department tweeted Wednesday morning.

The police department tweeted a photo of a multitasking officer giving the baby a bottle while typing on a tablet.

The driver was arrested and the baby was taken to North Suburban Medical Center. A sign on the wall of the hospital room had a smiley face and the words “Happy boy.”

Police have not said if the baby has been reunited with his mother or other family members.
