Boy, 4, breaks into Texas toy store Child got out of his home, then crossed a multilane street to reach store BEAUMONT, Texas - Police called to a variety store by a burglar alarm overnight found a toddler inside, playing with the toys. Police said store surveillance video showed the unidentified boy trying to open one of the front doors to a Family Dollar store about 3 a.m. Monday, only to find it locked. But the second door was unlocked and the child went inside. That triggered the silent alarm. Detective Randy Stevens said the child apparently unlocked a door at his nearby home, got out, then crossed a multilane street to reach the store. A canvass of the neighborhood turned up a family member searching for the child. CPS spokeswoman Shari Pulliam said Child Protective Services claimed oversight of a 4-year-old boy during a review of the incident. The boy will be allowed to stay with other relatives, not the parents, during the CPS review period. ================================================== This little tyke was obviously smart and a handful even in daylight hours. I'm surprised the main door of the house didn't have a chain about 18" -24" higher than the door knob, or a deadbolt. Deadbolts are usually harder to turn. Unless the parents were asleep due to a drug overdose or too much alcohol consumption, I'm not sure they were negligent.
