For the most part, parking an extravagantly expensive vehicle such as a Lamborghini Urus on your driveway is bound to gather a fair bit of unwanted attention. As a result, you won’t find a shortage of stories covering supercars and super SUVs getting stolen, regardless of their price tag. However, a recent story of a stolen Lamborghini SUV might be one of the wildest ones we’ve seen in quite some time.
According to WSVN, a 14-year-old broke into a home and stole the $250,000 SUV. However, instead of calling the police and sitting idly by, its owner decided to jump into action. Unfortunately, the only pursuit vehicle available at the time was a scooter.
How does a 14-year-old steal a Lamborghini Urus?
According to WSVN, this story began as a man heard his Lamborghini Urus fire up as he was sitting inside of his home in Miami Beach, FL. The man told WSVN:
“I’m in my home. I hear this thing start up. I look out the window, and I see somebody driving it away. I got on the scooter, went after the guy.”Lamborghini Urus owner via WSVN
As the owner tells it, he decided to jump on a scooter and chase after the teenager in the stolen SUV. Thankfully, the 14-year-old didn’t get very far, largely because he admitted to not knowing how to drive. This gave the owner and the police enough time to catch up with the teenager. According to WSVN, the teen decided to park the SUV on a sidewalk and attempt to run on foot. However, he didn’t make it very far.
‘I stole a Lamborghini…I don’t have a license. I can’t drive.’
As you might imagine, the average 14-year-old isn’t exactly a criminal mastermind. Despite managing to steal the Lamborghini Urus and taking it on a short joyride, the teen freaked out after ditching the SUV on the side of the road. According to WSVN, the teen ran through a small neighborhood before encountering a man sitting on his front porch.
According to WSVN, the teen quickly admitted to stealing the Lamborghini, telling the man on the porch, “I stole a Lamborghini,” then adding, “I don’t have a license. I can’t drive.” As most frightened teens would, the 14-year-old asked the man for advice, to which he replied, “You’re better off turning yourself in. They’re going to go much, much easier on you.”
As this conversation took place, both the Lamborghini’s owner and the local police department caught up with the teen, eventually taking him into custody. Fortunately for the teen, his arrest was swift and uneventful.
This Lamborghini Urus owner eventually recovered his stolen SUV
Once police apprehended the teen, the Lamborghini Urus owner chimed in on how the 14-year-old stole the SUV in the first place. According to the owner, he believes the teenager managed to sneak into his garage. From there, it was as easy as finding the keys, starting it up, and driving away.
Thankfully for the owner of the $250,000 SUV, it seems the teen wasn’t able to cause any serious damage. In the end, the SUV’s owner was able to jump in and head home with his prized posession.
