It seems that the operation took place after 6 PM, so the dealership employees couldn’t verify the check until the following day. As you can imagine, Crystal was long gone by then, enjoying the benefits of the four-door Porsche.
The dealer contacted the man twice and while he agreed to make the necessary payment, they never heard from him until two weeks later, when he returned the Panamera. There was just one small issue - the odometer had jumped from 70 to 2,300 miles (113 to 3,700 km).
Earlier this month, Judge William Stone issues the sentence - the Porsche-napper was charged with grand theft auto for over $100,000, as well as issuing an invalid check, as Northwest Daily News writes.
Doesn’t 30 years sound like a bit too much for an “extended” test drive?Of course it does. It’s just that, like we said, Crystal has huge crush on Porsche and he’s pulled a similar stunt back in 2004. Want to try and guess what he did back then? That is correct, another wrong check. In fact, the Florida man was on probation for fraud and theft, which means he was treated as a habitual felony offender.
Guess we know what car he’ll be thinking about while behind bars.
