The Miami Herald reports:
Sometimes a Florida man makes it so easy for law enforcement. In this particular instance, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office said that Ronnie Dillon Willis, 25, returned to the Winter Haven home of a woman who was being interviewed by officers. Marta Diaz had called deputies to report that her 2009 Jeep Patriot had been stolen earlier in the day on March 24.
According to an arrest affidavit, Willis pulled up to the front of her house in that tan Jeep and got out of the driver’s side.
As Diaz and the officer looked at him, deputies say Willis told them he was “looking for his cellular phone, which was pinging back to the residence.” “The deputy, who probably could not believe the way this call was unfolding, arrested Ronnie for grand theft of a motor vehicle,” the sheriff’s department told Lakeland’s Patch.
