Man arrested for stealing truck

A 50-year-old Miami-Dade County man was arrested Monday for stealing a work truck in the Upper Keys.

Garby Saintolien was charged with grand theft of a motor vehicle, making a false police report, and driving with a suspended or revoked license.

Saintolien flagged down a Deputy near Mile Marker 100 at approximately 8:44 a.m. and falsely reported that he had been battered and shot at by a construction worker. The Sheriff’s Office learned that was false, and that Saintolien punched the construction worker and drove off the work site in a Ford F-150 pickup truck without the company’s permission.

Saintolien changed his story several times. He was taken to jail.
