A Naples man was arrested Wednesday in connection with a bizarre incident on Dorando Drive.

Jacob Matthew RIley, 28, is charged with trespassing and burglary, after Collier County deputies say he walked into a home at 2 a.m. After he was escorted out, they say he broke into a car parked outside the house, pretending to be the car's owner.

"He just knocked on the door, I answered it and he just kind of walked in," said Esteban Ortiz, a resident at the home.

"At first I was shocked and I was like, 'what are you doing, get out,'" Ortiz added. "Then I just ran to my parents' room and got my dad, and my dad just calmed him down and walked him out."

Ortiz said the man, later identified as Riley, left the house - but not the driveway.

"He was trying to get into all the cars, but they're all brother left his car open," Ortiz said. 

Riley's arrest report states that when deputies arrived and found Riley sitting in the car, he laughed and said "OK, the joke is over," telling them that he lived at the house.

Deputies informed him it was no joke and asked to see his ID. He reportedly handed them the driver's license belonging to Esteban Ortiz's brother Felipe.

According to the report, when deputies asked Riley why he was sitting in side Felipe's car, he answered, "It's a good place to smoke meth."

Riley is charged with displaying another person's ID in addition to the burglary and trespassing charges. He was booked into the Collier County Jail on an $8,000 bond.
