SAN ANTONIO- A man is facing charges after he allegedly stole items from an elderly man's house and stole his money out of his bank account.

On July 8, a 66-year-old man was working on his car in the parking lot of his apartment complex when Mark Elimon started to help him out with the car.

After they repaired the car, the man let Elimon inside his apartment to rest. Elimon called his sister to pick him up, and the other man fell asleep.

When he woke up, he found Elimon had left and his Bluetooth speaker and computer tablet had been stolen.

The man went to an ATM and his account balance was negative. His bank said an amount of $257 had been taken out and put into a PayPal account for Elimon.

The victim called the suspect's sister after Elimon had used his phone and told her he had stolen some of his property and money.

Police say the sister told the 66-year-old victim that Elimon had a history of stealing and had even stolen from her several times.

Two days later, the sister texted the victim about information on the computer. She said Elimon was asleep at her home and that she would try to get the stolen computer back to him.

She confronted Elimon and was unable to retrieve the computer.

The victim told police he saw the suspect walking to the apartment complex and tried questioning him, but he ran away from him.

The victim's stolen items were never returned.
