Sometimes, truth is stranger than fiction. A Lamborghini stolen from celebrity chef Guy Fieri has been found a year after it first went missing. In case you need refreshing, the Lambo was pilfered by a thief who literally rappelled off the roof of a building in order to get access to the Italian Stallion.

It seems the perpetrator had a thing for stealthy operations – the vehicle turned up during an investigation that began after a motorcyclist wearing all black fired a gun into a parked car. The gunman was a 17-year-old boy, and Fieri's car was located in a storage container in Point Richmond, California, along with the boy's motorcycle and apparent evidence linking him to the shooting.

Fieri, for his part, is happy to have his Lamborghini back:

"I would like to thank the Marin County Sheriff's Office and the Mill Valley Police Department for their hard work and effort in the recovery of my car. I'm glad we can put this behind us, and feel better knowing that justice is being served."

If absence truly does make the heart grow fonder, we'd be happy to have our Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder back in one piece, too, especially considering it's been over a year since its disappearance.

      Guy seems like a nice guy. I don't know why all the negative comments. He works for a living, has a great show and has his family. He's a decent guy who made good. Be happy he got his Lambo back. He worked for it. I hope this kid who stole his Lambo goes to prison.

      Guy's show is "Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives" driving a muscle car for the show adds a little nostalgia and history. Gone are the days when roadhouses were the norm. He's a happy Dude who's paid his dues , loves his family, and is able to live what? Too many people have bizarre negative comments for this guy. Chill...and appreciate the fact that he's a decent person.

      No Chef worth his grilled cheese entrees would lose his Lambo. My My and right in my own backyard---where did they say the storage contrainer is? (be specific, please)

      it belongs to his insurance company..if he wants it back he'll have to buy it from them.

      I find it really difficult to believe you can actually steal something as expensive as a lambo without the keys. It's like the automakers want their cars stolen. I can't log into a web forum without a password. I can steal a lambo with a wiring diagram?

      Ok - now how about investing in a GPS tracker! Cost of live gps tracker $349 - cost of Labmo - $200K. Lambo - stolen with gps tracker - get it back in hours! Even disable the starter - so the thief won't be able to start it!

        sometimes the trackers are useless when put into a container

      Mr. Korzeniewski i do believe that the "Italian Stallion" is Ferrari and that Lamborghinis marque is the "raging bull"
