Hunkins told police the Ferrari belonged to a friend, however, he was unable to provide a name or number for the alleged acquaintance.

Upon further investigation, the officer learned that the vehicle had been stolen from Palm Beach County.

The Gainesville Police Department gave Hunkins a shout out of sorts on their Facebook page, mocking the many errors he’d made in his attempt to steal the vehicle.

“2. Certainly don’t steal a $250,000 2017 Ferrari California,” the post continued. “2a. Especially when the window sticker is still on it.”

Hunkins was booked into the Alachua County Jail. He’s being held on a $50,000 bond. Read More
