Over a year after it was stolen, Guy Fieri’s bright yellow Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder was found Saturday night in a storage container in Point Richmond. Marin County officers raided the container with a search warrant and arrested a 17-year-old suspect there who was wanted for an April 13 shooting incident in Mill Valley, in which he allegedly fired a handgun from a motorcycle into a parked vehicle. Is this kid the same person who rappelled into the Van Ness showroom in March 2011 where Fieri’s prized car was being stored and took off with it across the Golden Gate Bridge?
The details are unclear, and the suspect’s name has not been released, but Fieri should be happy to have his baby back. We wonder if the insurance company — who likely gave him the money to buy this monstrosity — will want their money back now.
Update: Fieri has released a statement. “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 that justice is being served.” [Chron]
