Criminal genius is a spectacle.
A man who allegedly stole a more than $300,000 Ferrari from an Orange County service center was apprehended after asking for money to buy gas at a Mobil Station in Santa Ana, the vehicle’s owner’s boyfriend told KTLA Tuesday night.
According to York, the suspect walked into the service center, found the keys on the Ferrari’s seat and then drove away.
By the time it was discovered at the gas station two weeks later, the car had been trashed. York described the damage, saying the underneath was “ripped to shred,” the paddle shifters had been torn out and the dashboard had also been “chopped.” Inside, the car was dirty and covered in vomit.
Police approached the alleged thief after he was asked for money to purchase the gas for the exotic car, the Los Angeles Times reported. He also didn’t appear to know how to put the gasoline in the vehicle.
