Advice from the  Gainesville Police Department .


1. Don't steal stuff. It's just not nice.

2. Certainly don't steal a $250,000 2017 Ferrari California.
2a. Especially when the window sticker is still on it.

3. If you ARE going to steal a $250,000 Ferrari...with the window sticker still on it...DON'T drive next to a Gainesville/Alachua County Drug Task Force vehicle with a License Plate Reader.

4. The "18MPG" is incorrect. We were only able to get 10mpg out of it when we drove it to the station.

5. #4 is a joke. We had it safely towed for the rightful owner.
