Annoy­ing Tots 1, car thief 0 - A car thief in New York City ran into a lit­tle prob­lem when try­ing to make off with a shiny new Honda Odyssey — make that two lit­tle prob­lems, one aged seven, the other aged five. The crook hopped into the Russo family’s van as it was parked out­side a pet store, not notic­ing that two young boys and a yap­ping poo­dle were inside. He drove off with his pas­sen­gers in tow, only to get a mas­sive headache from the lads, who told him he was in the wrong car — and warned him not to snag any of the quar­ters in the change tray. The bad guy, iden­ti­fied as “Leo,” gave up and drove the vehi­cle to the family’s house — where he fled on foot with his shirt pulled up over his face.
