Guy Steals Ferrari Then Gets Caught Because He Doesn't Have Gas Money


He was also high on something. Explains so much.

Clearly things didn’t go as planned for 36-year-old Georgia resident Rocky Jimenez. You see, Jimenez was arrested last Sunday in San Rafael, California on suspicion of stealing a new Ferrari 488 GTB from a local dealership, according to the local CBS affiliate of San Francisco. How was he caught? Well, police responded to a call of a suspicious man associated with said Ferrari because he was asking people for gas money. Ferrari owners typically don’t do something like that, but Jimenez’s strangeness didn’t end there.

For whatever reason, while at the gas station he began pouring gas on the Ferrari itself. The responding officers were told by Jimenez that he was the Ferrari’s owner and that it had been in the shop for service for (really??) two years. He told the police he had ownership papers in his backpack and allowed them to search it. They found not only a key to the Ferrari in question, but also a key to another Ferrari. No ownership papers were found. Rightly smelling bullshit, the officers contacted the local Ferrari dealership. It was quickly confirmed the $245,000 488 GTB had been stolen. Jimenez was subsequently arrested on suspicion of car theft, possession of stolen property and – this makes total sense now – possession of a controlled substance.
