An accused carjacker, who allegedly stole a vehicle containing two children in Reno on Monday, is being held without bail in Washoe County Jail on kidnapping and child endangerment charges.

Jason Day, 48, was arrested around 5 p.m. after Carson City deputies spotted a 2017 gray Equinox near the intersection of Arrowhead and Carson Street.

While the two children ages 8 months and 2 were not in the vehicle, Day reportedly told deputies he’d dropped them off at a Carson motel, where they were found safe.

According to the Reno Police Department, the Equinox with dealer plates was taken from a South Virginia Street CVS Pharmacy.
