Buffalo Police say the man lied to police about a child being in the vehicle for getting a faster response.

A Buffalo man has been charged over falsely reporting an incident after he informed police Saturday night that his car, with a 9-year-old boy inside the car, had been stolen.

The car was indeed stolen. However, Buffalo Police say the man lied to police about the child being in the vehicle so that he could “get a quicker police response”.

Jaron Quarles, 29, of Buffalo has been charged with wrongly reporting an incident, and there is a possibility of levying more charges.

Police say the incident occurred at 8:30 p.m. Saturday near Orleans Street and Lasalle Avenue, while the keys were still inside the running vehicle and the boy in the car. The man went into a nearby mini-mart.

Multiple officers rushed to the scene and a large search began. Just after 9:15 p.m. Buffalo Police tweeted that the child had been found safe.

On Sunday, police say information showed that the child was never inside the vehicle, which remains missing.
