A Florida father stopped a would-be kidnapper from snatching his little girl.

When Dennis Myers heard the child screaming over a baby monitor Saturday morning, he ran into her room where he found Megan Jones hunched over his baby’s crib.

He grabbed Jones and threw her out of his home.

Detectives used DNA to track her down and place her under arrest.

Jones is also accused of breaking into another home that same day to steal prescription drugs.
