Marin County teen on trial in theft of Guy Fieri's Lamborghini

SAN RAFAEL — A Northern California teenager is on trial for the brazen theft of celebrity chef Guy Fieri's Lamborghini sports car from a San Francisco dealership.

Max Wade, who is 19 years old, has been charged with commercial burglary and auto theft in the 2011 heist that was pulled off by a burglar who rappelled into the British Motors dealership and drove off in Fieri's $200,000 convertible.

Marin County authorities who were investigating Wade in an unrelated drive-by shooting found the missing car last year when they followed him to a storage facility.

Wade also has been charged with attempted murder in the shooting, which involved a girl, whom Wade allegedly liked, and her boyfriend.

Defense lawyer Charles Dresow told jurors during opening statements in a San Rafael courtroom Friday that only circumstantial evidence links his client to either crime.
