A Central Florida man is happy to have his stolen car back after he randomly pulled up behind it at a red light Monday.


Ben Gaskill said he left on Friday with his family to New Smyrna Beach for a weekend vacation. He said when they came back on Sunday, his wife's 2005 Hyundai Sonata was gone from the driveway.

Gaskill said someone broke into their house and stole the spare keys.

He said he was driving to the hardware store after work on Monday when he stopped at a red light at Good Holmes and Old Winter Garden Road. He said when he looked up, he was stopped directly behind the stolen car.

He said the car had the familiar flower sticker in the back window that he had put there for his wife.

"You never really think you're going to see it again," Gaskill said.

He said he called 911 and stayed on the phone with the dispatcher until deputies arrived and arrested the suspects.

According to the Orange County Sheriff's Office, three 17-year-olds and a 16-year-old were arrested.

Deputies said they also found marijuana in the car.
