Yakima Police have arrested a man for robbery after they say he stole a families car at gunpoint at a Yakima Walmart store. Police say the incident was reported at about 8:30 pm Monday at the Walmart on Chestnut Avenue.

Officers aren't saying it's a carjacking but it sure sounds like it

Capt. Jay Seely says when Officers arrived they found a man who told them his kids were waiting in the car for him while he was shopping at Walmart. He told police while shopping he received a call from his young daughter saying a man was in their car with a gun telling her to be quiet. The suspect started the car and drove around the parking lot before dropping the girl and her brother off near the store.

The kids were not harmed and were able to walk back to the store

They walked back to the store to find their father and speak with police to give a description of the suspect. Hours later A Union Gap Officer spotted the man driving the stolen vehicle. The man stopped the vehicle and ran away before being caught and taken into custody. A passenger in the vehicle was also arrested on multiple felonies and outstanding warrants. Both are being held in the in the Yakima County jail.

Police say don't leave your kids and keys in your vehicle when away

Authorities urge parents to not leave kids unattended in vehicles especially if the vehicle is in operation or the keys are available. Last year local authorities arrested a man who stole a vehicle with a baby sitting in the back seat from the parking lot of a local post office. The baby was found unharmed and the man was arrested in the lower valley while driving the stolen vehicle. Police are hoping to avoid that kind of situation in the future.

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.
