BRONSON, Fla. (AP) — Authorities believe a man stole his 28-year-old son’s car and took money from his grandson’s piggy bank.

According to a Levy County Sheriff’s Office news release, Ronald Joyner was arrested Monday and charged with grand theft auto and petty theft. Jail records indicate that Joyner was being held on $6,000 bond Tuesday.

Joyner’s son told a deputy that his 2002 silver Kia and his 46-year-old father were both gone when he woke up early Monday morning. The man’s son also said that $50 in change was taken from a piggy bank that belonged to Joyner’s grandson.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Joyner had an attorney.
