PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -A Port St. Lucie man who stole a delivery driver’s keys to get back at him over a grudge has been arrested on felony burglary charges. Matthew Everett Gray allegedly admitted swiping the keys of a Pepsi-Cola service truck because he wanted the driver to get in trouble at work. The keys unlocked some 20 vending machines.
The victim identified Gray from surveillance photos captured last week in the Wal-Mart parking lot, where the truck was unattended for an hour.
Police said Gray told them he wasn’t planning to use the keys to steal anything from the vending machines. He was arrested on charges of felony burglary and theft. No attorney for Gray was listed with the St. Lucie County court.
