POCATELLO — Police say two motorists who were stranded along an icy stretch of Interstate 15 stole a car with two children inside when a good Samaritan stopped to help them Saturday night.

However, authorities say the children, ages 11 and 12, outwitted the suspects, resulting in them being arrested less than an hour after the alleged car theft and kidnapping, which occurred at 8:40 p.m.
