    A pair of Columbia County residents used their car's key fob to hold onto a man suspected of trying to steal the car until deputies arrived to arrest the man.

    The incident began at 5:40 a.m. when a watchful neighbor noticed someone trying to break into the neighbors' car in the 200 block of Southwest Kimdale Loop in Lake City, according to the Columbia County Sheriff's Office. The neighbor alerted the car's owners, who discovered a man sitting in their car.

    "So every time he tried to get out of the car, the owners just kept hitting the lock button on their key fob, and eventually he gave up trying to get out," Sheriff's Office spokesman Sgt. Ed Seifert said.

    Deputies Sean Sikes and Keith Spradley found Travis James Neeley, 19, of 388 S.W. Spaulding Court in Fort White, still inside the car. While the deputies were arresting Neeley, they saw another vehicle passing by the home and being driven by a man deputies suspected of being involved in the attempted car theft, Seifert said.

    During a brief, predawn chase, deputies said the suspect turned off the car's headlights and then abandoned it near a wooded area.

    When K-9 teams were unable to find the suspect, a search was begun of homes where the man was known to stay from time to time.

    Seifert said the suspect was found at about 8:30 a.m. inside a home believed to be his mother's Lake City residence at 665 S.W. Butzer Road.

    The man was identified as Peter Anthony Scandizzo, 25, of 395 S.W. Thrasher Lane in Lake City.

    Neeley was charged with burglary of a vehicle, possession of burglary tools, criminal mischief and trespassing.

    Scandizzo was charged with fleeing and eluding, possession of marijuana, possession of burglary tools, loitering and prowling, conspiracy to commit burglary and resisting arrest.

    Good for the owners and the neighbor. Concerned citizens are a treasure.

    This woulda been priceless! I love that he finally just gave up, too! I would give just about anything to hear the internal monolouge going thru his mind as he was trying to get out and unable to do so. Ha!

    What I find amusing is that he didn't realize he just had to fake unlockin it, the guy presses the button to unlock everything, then he's home free. Seriously, sounds like a job insurance kinda crook.

    Ummmm NO! This is not the 80's, the owner was not using the clapper to lock the door.
    A key fop has a seperate button for lock and unlock.

    It just keeps getting better, don't it?
    Depends on the car, you just have to pull the latch and the door unlocks and opens in one motion. The BMW requires two separate pulls, but my CVPI just opens even if it's locked.
