Police retrieve chef Guy Fieri's Lamborghini Gallardo one year after theft

Posted on by 0

In what can only be described as a scene out of Mission Impossible, Guy Fieri’s 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo was stolen in May of last year by an extremely brave and stealthy burglar who scaled the roof of the showroom the celebrity chef’s Lamborghini was being stored in, before rappelling down, unlocking the garage door and driving off with unquestionably one of Fieri’s most prized possessions.

And almost exactly one year to the day since the theft, the Marin County Sheriff’s Office and Mill Valley Police Department recently recovered the vehicle in the most unlikely of places. It was rumored that the robber may have sold off the car, but no, it actually turned up in a storage container in Point Richmond, California owned by a 17-year-old male.

The same teenager was recently brought to attention after firing at an occupied pickup truck from his blacked-out motorcycle. Fortunately, no one n that event was injured, but this goes to show that the suspect has clearly been in the criminal world for some time, as it takes some nerve to fire on innocent civilians. Actually it doesn’t only take nerve; it also takes extreme levels of stupidity.

Either way, the teen is likely to be charged for the theft of the supercar as well as the shooting in the coming days and we’ll be very surprised if he escapes substantial jail time.
