Police in Coral Springs, Florida say they've nabbed a conspiring Casanova who took an 18 year old woman out on a date while his accomplice broke into her home, stealing $4,300 worth of her property.

The man who first identified himself as "Florenciano Valentino" is actually Anthony Maldanado, 18, of Miami Gardens, police said Thursday.

He was taken into custody without incident on charges of residential burglary and grand theft and taken to Miami-Dade County Jail, where he later posted $4,500 bond.

According to police, Maldanado, using his Italian moniker, met Kelley Galbraith, 18, at a party a week before they went out to lunch at Applebee's in Coral Springs on February 25.

While they were on their date, Maldanado's partner broke into Galbraith's house through a window and stole "several high value items," police said.

Before he left Applebee's, Maldanado stole his date's cell phone and left her with the bill.

Police are still looking for Maldanado's accomplice.
