Right and wrong aside, the thief who heisted Guy Fieri’s Lamborghini Gallardo deserves a sliver of credit — it’s not every day a punk rappels from a dealer ceiling to steal a car. Still, there’s no arguing with the fact that his arrest is a good thing.
What might have otherwise remained a mystery in the annals of car theft unravelled when police found the yellow supercar sitting in a storage garage rented by a 17-year-old. The car originally disappeared in May, 2011, written off by its celebrity chef owner who bought the first yellow Chevrolet Camaro convertible off the line.
“I would like to thank the Marin County Sheriff’s Office and the Mill Valley Police Department for their hard work and effort in the recovery of my car. I’m glad we can put this behind us and feel better knowing justice is being served,” Fieri said.
The car wasn’t even in bed shape according to the San Francisco Gate. The thief, who hasn’t been confirmed as the same 17-year-old, pulled a Mission Impossible-style drop into the showroom where Fieri’s car sat. There’s no word on how much street cred a stunt like that carries in the slammer, but the kid is probably going to find out.
