CHICAGO — A woman told officers her 1-year-old son was inside her stolen car because she wanted a faster police response, officials said.

Jeanette Holt, 25, of Harvey, Ill., was arrested and charged with felony disorderly conduct for making a false police report, according to police.

Holt called 911 about 9:38 a.m. Wednesday after her 1997 Chevrolet Monte Carlo was stolen with the keys in the ignition from in front of a daycare center in the 400 block of East 79th Street, according to a release and Officer Veejay Zala, a police spokesman.

Holt said her son was inside the car when it was stolen.

"Officers quickly responded and desperately searched the immediate area as well as adjacent districts," according to a statement from police.

But officers eventually found Holt's son safe inside the daycare.

Holt told officers she wanted a faster police response, according to a news release.

Holt will appear in bond court Thursday.
