BENTON, AR (KAIT/KARK) - A central Arkansas nurse's car was stolen while dropping off her daughter at daycare.

According to KARK, Sherry Jensen was dropping her off at The Childcare Network on her way to work when a thief jumped into her vehicle and took off.

Security cameras had been installed just days before the incident happened. Surveillance footage showed how fast the thief jumped in the car and took off.

"I came out. I stood. I kind of looked," Jensen said. "He looks at me. I look at him, and he drives down the hill in my vehicle."

Benton police found the vehicle just a few hours later using the car's GPS system.

Some credit cards and change were missing. Police are still searching for the suspect.
