A 26-year-old man from Westlake is accused of stealing his neighbor's GPS unit after the same neighbor let him borrow his car to move out on February 13.
The owner gave the suspect a chance to return it or pay for it but the suspect claimed the $139 GPS was not in the car when he used it, according to Westlake Police.
By coincidence, the suspect had been kicked out of his apartment after his roommate's Nintendo Wii and jewelry disappeared, police said.
