A Florida man is accused of stealing his roommates' Ford F-150 – and pants. 

Frank Wayne, 59, was arrested and charged with grand theft of a motor vehicle and petit theft - pick pocketing after the incident that unfolded last week in Palm Coast, according to the Flagler County Sheriff's Office. 

Deputies responded to a home on Boxwood Lane in Palm Coast on Sunday for a report of larceny and a stolen blue Ford F-150. Wayne's roommate said he believes his pickup truck was taken last Wednesday.

"Initially, the caller did not report the vehicle stolen because he thought that it would be brought back, although he said he did not give permission to Wayne to drive the vehicle this time," deputies said. 

Another person at the same house said his pants were stolen. Inside the pants were his keys and wallet that had $120 in cash.
