GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WATE) - Gainesville, Fla. police had a little Facebook fun after they stopped a man driving a stolen $250,000 Ferrari on Thursday.
Hilburn Hunkins, 26, was stopped for driving suspiciously by a Gainesville/Alachua County Drug Task Force officer, who used a license plate reader to figure out the Ferrari was stolen, according to ABC News.
After the arrest, police used their Facebook page to provide some helpful tips for their followers:
1. Don't steal stuff. It's just not nice.
2. Certainly don't steal a $250,000 2017 Ferrari California.
2a. Especially when the window sticker is still on it.
3. If you ARE going to steal a $250,000 Ferrari...with the window sticker still on it...DON'T drive next to a Gainesville/Alachua County Drug Task Force vehicle with a License Plate Reader.
4. The "18MPG" is incorrect. We were only able to get 10mpg out of it when we drove it to the station.
5. #4 is a joke. We had it safely towed for the rightful owner.
Hunkins initially told officers the car belonged to a friend, but was unable to name the friend. He then asked to make a call on his cell phone, then tried to erase it before police could look.
He is charged with grand larceny.
