After arresting the driver of a stolen, black $250 thousand-dollar Ferrari, police in Gainesville, Florida post hilarious social media messages exposing the suspect’s stupid mistakes that got him caught.
On Thursday morning (December 28), an officer with the Gainesville/Alachua County Drug Task Force pulled over a vehicle in Florida for suspicious driving.
However, this traffic stop was far from routine. For starters, the high-end vehicle had its license plates ran by the officer and the reader determined the car to be reported stolen. The car was a brand new black 2017 Ferrari California. This is certainly not just any old car. It has an appraised value that stands around $250,000 dollars.
The driver of the pricey, stolen sports car drew attention to himself by driving erratically and communicating with another driver who was operating a brand new red Chevy Corvette. When the task force officer finally swooped in, he was able to quickly identify the driver as Hilburn Hunkins, a 26-year-old male from the Virgin Islands.
