A 24-year-old woman accused of stealing an SUV with a toddler strapped inside in Pittsburg last week will remain in bars unless she posts $100,000 for bail, a judge decided.
Nataly Ayala remains in the Martinez Detention Center awaiting her first court appearance for the alleged carjacking.
Pittsburg police claimed that she jumped into a running Chevy Tahoe outside an auto body shop on Thursday and drove off with a 1-year-old girl in a car seat.
The toddler was found safe a short time later after the SUV was found abandoned at a nearby apartment complex.
The abduction had triggered an Amber Alert.
