HOUSTON, Texas (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A 9-year-old from Houston is happy to be home Friday night after someone stole the car he and four other children were still in.

Alexc Veasley says his driver stopped at a Jack-In-The-Box to get the kids some food when police say 24-year-old Brenton Simmons jumped into the SUV.

Police say Simmons drove around with the sleeping kids for hours, while speeding and swerving all over the road.

While stopping for gas, Veasley called 9-1-1 with his driver's cellphone, which was still in a cup-holder in the back.

Police came to the gas station, and brought Veasley home.
