MIAMI (WSVN) - A man arrested for allegedly stealing an Amazon truck made an appearance in court.

The suspect, 26-year-old Miclaud Arisda, faced a judge, Tuesday afternoon.

“The police was dispatched regarding a stolen Amazon van,” said a judge. “He then attempted to leave and flee. He said he was going to a nearby store to purchase some sandals while was being detained.”

Arisda was given a $16,000 bond.

According to police, they were in unmarked units Monday night when they noticed Arisda driving the truck erratically before pulling him over in the area of 900 Miami Beach Boulevard, in North Miami Beach, which led to his arrest.

The actual driver of the Amazon truck told police they left their keys in the ignition while making a delivery when it was stolen along the 1500 block of Northeast 135th Street.

7News cameras captured a large police presence when officers put Arisda into a police cruiser. He was then taken to jail.

When a reporter on the scene asked him if he stole the truck, he responded with, “Why would I want to steal the [expletive] truck?”

He faces grand theft, resisting an officer and unlawful possession charges.

The owners of the truck eventually showed up Monday night and took the truck away and drove it off after talking to police.
