      Grandparents put girl in trunk to make room for tables

      Jefferson City Police responded to the Menards on Stone Creek Drive after a woman called 9-1-1 to report hearing someone inside the trunk frantically yelling, "Let me out!"
      A 5-year-old girl is unharmed after her grandparents put her in the trunk of their vehicle Saturday to make room for two tables.

      Marc and Mary Vaucher of Fulton told police they bought the tables and didn't have room in the trunk, so they decided to put the girl there instead.

      Jefferson City Police responded to the Menards on Stone Creek Drive after a woman called 9-1-1 to report hearing someone inside the trunk frantically yelling, "Let me out!" She then witnessed the Vauchers get out of the car and open the trunk so the girl could get out.

      The Vauchers were arrested for endangering the welfare of a child and taken to the Cole County Jail. The girl was released into the custody of another family member.
