ALACHUA COUNTY, Fla. (WGFL) — A man from Florida is facing charges after he admitted to stealing a company's tow truck as revenge for the time they towed his car.

Late Tuesday evening, Florida Highway Patrol troopers received a tip that a tow truck had been stolen out of Orange County, according to a report. After midnight on Wednesday, one trooper spotted the stolen "Car Store Towing" vehicle driving north on I-75.

The trooper pulled the truck over and spoke with Aimee Onggo, 30, according to the report. Onggo admitted to stealing the truck.

A search of Onggo and the truck resulted in the recovery of methamphetamine, Xanax and hydrocodone, according to the report. Onggo was arrested and charged with grand theft auto and three counts of possession of a controlled substance.

He remains in the Alachua County Jail with a $50,000.
