SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (AP) – Police in Northern California say a man panhandling for money to put gas in a Ferrari was arrested for stealing the luxury car.
The Mercury News reports (http://bayareane.ws/2s8Dx7r) 36-year-old Rocky Jimenez was booked into Marin County jail on vehicle theft, burglary, and drug possession charges.
San Rafael Police Sgt. Lisa Holton says Jimenez was arrested Sunday after police received reports of a suspicious man who asked a witness for gas money and was then seen pouring the fuel on a Ferrari.
Holton says officers searched Jimenez’s backpack and found the key to the Ferrari, a 2016 488 GTB but no ownership documents. A Ferrari representative confirmed that the vehicle had been stolen from the service center in San Rafael.
She says Jimenez also had a key to a second Ferrari that had not been stolen.
