KISSIMMEE, Fla. - A man was arrested on theft and burglary charges after he stole items out of several of his neighbors' unlocked cars, according to the Osceola County Sheriff's Office.

Neighbors on Pershing Street in Kissimmee told deputies that about $350 worth of items, including gift cards, a cellphone, a charger, an air freshener and money was missing.

Earlier in the evening, deputies said they responded to a "suspicious person" call after a woman reported seeing Alexander Bokalitz, 24, looking through her bedroom window.

Deputies said they tried to find Bokalitz, who lives a few doors down, but were unable to.

Several hours later, deputies returned to the neighbor's house after several homeowners reported about $350 worth of items, including gift cards, a cellphone, a charger, an air freshener and money, was missing.

Deputies said Bokalitz's girlfriend let them in his home, where they found Bokalitz and the stolen items.

Investigators said Bokalitz, a registered felon, was arrested and charged with two counts of unoccupied car burglary, grand theft, loitering and prowling and petit theft.

Bokalitz was booked into the Osceola County Jail.
