Fresh from jail, man seeking heroin in Mpls. allegedly steals idling car full of children


Hours after he was released from jail, a man stole a car full of children in downtown Minneapolis on Christmas Eve and led police on a high-speed chase before crashing in Maple Grove, according to charges filed this week.

Samuel Adam McFarlane, 28, of Princeton, faces felony charges of kidnapping, first-degree aggravated robbery and criminal vehicular operation causing substantial bodily harm in connection with the incident. McFarlane, who was booked into the Hennepin County jail Dec. 23 on an unrelated matter and released about 1 p.m. on Christmas Eve without charges, told police he was looking for heroin when he stole the idling car at the SuperAmerica gas station near Grant Street and LaSalle Avenue. Inside were five children ranging in age from 1 to 13.
