Man accused of abandoning children at roadside, stealing truck
A 32-year-old man was in custody, and Child Protective Services workers were caring for his three children after the youngsters were found in a minivan abandoned along a rural roadside between Salado and Holland in Bell County. Anthony Alfredo Chavez was in the Bell County Jail Tuesday afternoon. He was arrested after a bizarre series of events that started when a passerby spotted the minivan with the driver's door open on the side of FM 2268. He stopped to check, and found the three children, ages 3, 4 and 7 alone inside the vehicle, which had a flat tire, Bell County Sheriff Eddy Lange said during a news conference.
