JEFFERSON CITY, Mo., May 7 (UPI) -- Missouri police have arrested a Fulton couple for placing their 5-year-old granddaughter in a car trunk to make room for two tables in the backseat.

Marc and Mary Vaucher were apprehended in a store parking lot after a witness told police she saw the couple take a child out of their car trunk, the Jefferson City (Mo.) News Tribune reported.

Under questioning, the couple admitted putting their granddaughter in the trunk after the tables they purchased at another location were too big for the trunk. Once the tables were placed in the backseat, there no room for their granddaughter.

The Vauchers were arrested for endangering the welfare of a child.
