SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (AP) - A jury has found a Northern California teen guilty of stealing celebrity chef Guy Fieri's Lamborghini from a San Francisco dealership.
The Marin County panel on Wednesday found 19-year-old Max Wade guilty of commercial burglary and auto theft, after hearing evidence that Wade had rappelled into British Motors to purloin the $200,000 convertible sports car in 2011.
He was also convicted of attempted murder for an unrelated drive-by shooting of a man dating a girl Wade desired. The man was unharmed.
Wade pleaded not guilty to the charges, and faces a maximum of 30 years in prison. He is scheduled for sentencing on Dec. 16.
The teen made news again last year after two people tried to break into juvenile hall with sledgehammers in an unsuccessful attempt to free Wade.
