What follows sounds more like a scene from “22 Jump Street” than a typical day in Orlando.
Orlando Police confirmed that officials were responding to a report of a stolen vehicle from the Lamborghini dealership at Field Motorcars of Florida on 33rd Street.
Ross said police notified him at around 8 a.m. Tuesday that his SUV was found, which was the first he heard of the theft.
“I’m super confused,” he said in the video. “How which car? I didn’t go anywhere last night. “
According to Ross, the vehicle was at the dealer for tire repair. The officer told him his car was stolen from the dealership and was “totally total,” Ross said in the video.
An OPD spokesman said the thieves drove a stolen vehicle to the Lamborghini dealership around 1 a.m. on Tuesday and stole a vehicle from the store. According to the Orlando police, the stolen Lamborghini was discovered a few hours after the theft and ultimately crashed in Maitland.
Orlando Police said the people who stole the vehicle fled the scene and were not arrested. The investigation is ongoing.
According to Ross, police told him several people smashed the dealership glass, snatched some keys, and then tried to see which key worked on different cars.
“The key they stumbled across was my key, my key to my apartment Lambo is stolen from the parking lot, they take this car and drive off,” said Ross.
The Orlando Magic Guard said authorities had recovered the stolen car in Winter Garden and started a pursuit.
“They start the chase, the guys take off, in my whip, they take off with my whip, they smash it, lose control and crash it into the side of a building, totally,” Ross said.
Ross was shopping at the dealership with his son on Tuesday and said he was “sick” about the loss of his car.
Ross had the SUV for three months after getting it for his birthday. In another Instagram post in February, Ross wrote, “This whip costs money, I don’t lie.” According to Cars.com, a Lamborghini Urus will start at $ 218,000 in 2021. Ross said his Urus was a special edition and in great demand.
