MARIN (AP) – A Northern California teenager convicted of stealing celebrity chef Guy Fieri’s Lamborghini planned to sell the car and also commit a jewelry heist, according to court documents.
Investigators found a sales contract for the Lamborghini in a locker Max Wade kept, according to a Marin County probation report released this week. Wade told probation officers he stole the car after rappelling from the roof of a San Francisco car dealership in March 2011.
The contract indicated that the 19-year-old planned to sell the car for $201,500 by shipping it from the Port of Oakland to a dealership in the Dominican Republic.

The shipping contract also carried the signature of Wade’s alias, “Carmine Leone Colombo,” an apparent reference to the New York mob family, according to the probation report, which was prepared before Wade was sentenced to life in prison Jan. 23.
A Marin County jury convicted Wade in October of attempted murder for a 2012 drive-by shooting targeting a man who was dating a girl he liked, the Lamborghini theft and other crimes. Wade was charged as an adult, though he was under 18 at the time he committed the crimes.
Wade’s probation report said he had a detailed plan to rob a popular San Francisco jewelry store. He kept a binder with the values of certain jewelry, along with names, titles and photographs of store employees, and details about alarms and cameras, the report said.
He also specified what equipment might be needed in the apparent heist, including police uniforms, body armor, an Uzi firearm and a helicopter.
The probation report includes Wade’s criminal history dating back to when he was 13. His string of crimes included theft, breaking into a house to throw a party, car theft, and an assault against his mother that left her with a bloody nose and black eye.
“The defendant appeared to be a very sophisticated young man,” the report said. “It is unfortunate that he spent his intelligence and time on plotting criminal activities.”
Wade was transferred to San Quentin State Prison on Thursday. Authorities were still deciding where he will serve the bulk of his sentence.
