NET News Service • Apr 22, 2013 at 7:26 AM

A tow truck driver found a surprise in the front seat of a vehicle he removed from the downtown Johnson City area early Sunday morning after he arrived at the impound yard — a baby.

Both of the baby’s parents, Gonzolo Campos-Molina, 22, and Violeta A. Arroyo, 24, both of 3806 Timberlake Road, No. 110, were arrested at their apartment about 10:30 p.m. Sunday on warrants charging them with child abuse and neglect.

The tow truck driver called 911 as soon as he saw the baby, according to the arrest warrants. Officers arrived and used a lock jock tool to get the baby out. Police also found an open can of beer in the middle console of the vehicle.
