Over the holiday weekend, one homeowner learned an expensive lesson. The owner of a 2021 Lamborghini Urus left the vehicle unlocked in the driveway when the luxury SUV was stolen sometime during the night. Are there any leads on this stolen car yet?
The 2021 Lamborghini Urus was stolen on Christmas Eve
According to 7News, a camera caught thieves stealing the 2021 Lamborghini Urus around 12:25 AM on Christmas Eve. The owner of the SUV spoke with 7 News about the incident, saying two thieves broke into his property and made off with the vehicle. “They jumped the fence, found the car, and basically drove off with it,” the owner said.
The owner seemed stunned that the thieves could get into the area and steal the SUV. It was behind a driveway gate, and there were cameras installed nearby, but he confirmed the vehicle was unlocked. Video of the incident showed the two perpetrators wearing light-colored clothing hopping the fence. The home was off Sunset Drive along SW 79th Court.
The owner of the Lamborghini Urus was asleep, but his wife was up wrapping gifts. She noticed the gate was open and alerted him. The couple checked the video cameras, which showed the Urus driving off a few minutes earlier. One of the suspects was running alongside the luxury SUV.
The Lamborghini Urus was an easy target because it was unlocked
This particular 2021 Lamborghini Urus had a custom paint job and rims, making it easy to identify. Unfortunately, that also means it is likely already in pieces and long gone. Thieves in the area are very good at stealing and getting rid of expensive vehicles like this in a short period of time.
The Lamborghini Urus is priced around $300,000, according to the owner. “Unfortunately, the car was unlocked. “It was just our lucky day,” he told 7 News. Upon noticing the Urus was gone, the couple called the police, but it was too late. He said he checked some other vehicles around nearby houses and noted that it looked like the thieves had been checking for unlocked cars. For the most part, those vehicles were locked and left unharmed. The duo got lucky when the Lamborghini was left unlocked.
Are “high-tech crooks” responsible for similar thefts in the area?
Recently, a brand new Dodge Ram, Dodge Charger, and a variety of other vehicles have been stolen by a duo driving a black Jeep. The local news says the thieves have been mirroring or copying the high-tech keys to get into cars. While the Lamborghini Urus was unlocked, it seems that that isn’t even a necessary step any longer.
Miami happens to be a haven for stolen cars and thieves, as the densely populated area is easy to hide in. Unfortunately, this 2021 Lamborghini Urus might be long gone by now. Luxury SUVs like the Urus are pretty popular in the area, both for stealing, renting, and buying.
