Terrifying theft

An unidentified person stole a vehicle from a convenience store at the corner of Tampa Avenue and Orange Center Boulevard Wednesday afternoon, authorities said. The thief drove off with the owner of the car clinging to the door and mirror before crashing into the side of a church, where more than 15 children were playing in a summer camp, according to officials from the Orlando Police Department. An employee of the church has said that no children were hurt.

A spokeswoman for the restaurant said they "were happy to accommodate" both Wellman and Honey. Read the full story on the surprise breakfast guest here.
