Police recover Guy Fieri’s stolen Lamborghini in storage unit

A rare Lamborghini owned by a celebrity chef has been recovered in Richmond, California, after police tracked the item down at a self storage facility.

Food Network star and chef Guy Fieri found himself entangled in a Hollywood-style mystery last year when his 2008 Lamborghini Spyder Gallardo was stolen from a dealership in California where it was being serviced. The thief allegedly rappelled off of the roof of the dealership in order to break in through a window, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. He then drove away in Fieri's vehicle.

Police had essentially given up finding the vehicle, as the crime was committed more than a year ago. However, after tracking the subject in connection with another crime, they eventually found the thief's storage locker and recovered the vehicle, along with a stolen motorcycle and a number of other items.

"I would like to thank the Marin County Sheriff's Office and the Mill Valley Police Department for their hard work and effort in the recovery of my car," Fieri said in a statement. "I'm glad we can put this behind us, and feel better knowing that justice is being served."

While in this case, secure storage was used for nefarious purposes, those who have less-illegal plans may find the space useful. As the thief unintentionally demonstrated, storage containers are a great way to store items that you might not otherwise have space for – even cars.

Jiffy Self Storage, a leader in Toronto storage solutions, is currently running a contest on their website for a free iPad 3. Visitors to the site simply need to match a few Canadian landmarks and they'll be entered to win the iPad or one of several other prizes.
