BELLEVIEW, FL – Authorities say a north Florida man was arrested after being gone too long while test-driving a truck from a used car lot.

The Ocala Star-Banner reports 67-year-old Lloyd Edward Kraft asked to test drive a red 1997 Ford F-250 on Friday afternoon. He gave employees of Prestige Auto his phone number and they made a copy of his driver's license.

The employee followed Kraft until he lost sight of him. Turns out the phone number didn't work and the address he listed was a vacant home. :huh: The employee called authorities.

A Marion County Sheriff's deputy saw the vehicle and detained Kraft, who said he was using the truck for work and planned to return it. He told authorities it was an "honest misunderstanding."

He's facing grand theft auto charges.

I don't see how he thought he would get away with truck theft, for very long.

lol just for a split second. I thought the word truck was incorrectly spelled and you had removed the 'tr' and replaced them with the letter 'f'
