Teen charged in theft of Fieri's Lamborghini

SAN RAFAEL — A Northern California teen charged in a drive-by shooting and the theft of a celebrity chef's Lamborghini kept an arsenal that included assault rifles, cellphone-jamming equipment and police gear, authorities said.

The items were stashed at a storage container rented by 17-year-old Max Michael Wade, who now faces a slew of charges including attempted murder, vehicle theft and commercial burglary.

The teen from tony Marin County inadvertently led investigators to the storage facility in Richmond, where they found the two assault rifles and shotgun shells, a San Francisco Police Department uniform and badge and false identification cards for California, Florida and New York, according to court documents obtained by the Marin Independent Journal (http://bit.ly/IHq8rc ).

There, investigators also found a motorcycle and gun linked to an April 13 drive-by shooting at two teenagers in a pickup truck and chef Guy Fieri's yellow 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder, Marin sheriff's Detective Greg Garrett said in the documents.

Investigators say they're still looking into how Wade obtained the weapons and police gear and whether he had accomplices in the sophisticated March 2011 car heist at a San Francisco dealership, where police said someone rappelled into the showroom then drove off with the $200,000 convertible.
