Bortles had his wallet stolen from his pickup truck Wednesday night in a weird robbery at teammate Brandon Linder's home.

It turns out that Horton had pilfered his new black Ford F-150 truck parked in front of the party, which was unlocked with its keys inside, according to TMZ.

Apparently the video also showed Horton removing Bortles' wallet from his truck, the station noted, adding that the wallet later found on the ground.

Bortles was attending a house party at teammate Brandon Linder's home when he noticed a man, Joseph Horton, that he didn't recognize.

But witnesses told police that Horton's attempts to drive off in Bortles' truck were thwarted by other cars boxing in the vehicle, WJXT said. Making his way inside Linder's house, Horton found his way upstairs, where guests confronted the unknown visitor and called police to the scene, the report stated.

A witness saw Horton inside Bortles' truck and did not think anything of it, as there was a gathering going on at the home.

At that point the video shows the thief, identified by police as 18-year-old Joseph Horton, go inside Linder's house, where he was eventually apprehended by Bortles and company.

Horton is being charged with grand theft, burglary and trespassing.

Horton gave police his address, which turned out to be a multimillion-dollar home on the Intracoastal Waterway just a few blocks down the street.

Police say that Bortles helped detain the suspect and was holding the teen inside the house when they arrived. Neighbors said he lives there with his parents.
