CAPE CORAL, Fla. -- Police have arrested a man they say stole a car from a Cape Coral driveway and drove around a neighborhood suspiciously.

19-year-old Robert Kondor has been charged with Grand Theft Auto.

According to Cape Coral Police, he was pulled over by officers in the 2400 block of Embers Parkway Sunday night after they noticed a broken headlight and the car being driven "suspiciously" through the neighborhood.

Further investigation revealed the car did not belong to Kondor.  A call to its owner revealed that they didn't even know the car was missing yet.

Investigators say Kondor was wearing gloves during the theft and that he checked several other vehicles which were locked until he found the Nissan unlocked with a set of keys inside of the driver side door pocket.
