SAN ANTONIO —
Police took three children into custody after they allegedly tried to break into a car in a parking lot, then stole a car from a newspaper delivery driver.
According to police, the children, between the ages of 12 and 14, tried to break into a car in a Walmart parking lot near Loop 1604 and Highway 281, shortly before 4 a.m. on Tuesday.
