Teen In Celeb Car Theft Had Cache of Police Gear

May 04, 2012  | 

A San Rafael teenager accused of shooting at a couple in Mill Valley and stealing a celebrity chef's Lamborghini was charged as an adult Tuesday as additional details surfaced about his alleged underworld of impersonation, weaponry and high-tech gear.

Max Michael Wade, 17, was arrested Saturday after a mix of canniness and luck led sheriff's investigators to his rented storage container in Richmond, where they discovered a dismantled AK-47 assault rifle, another assault rifle, shotgun shells and electronic equipment for jamming cellphones and radios, according to court documents.

Investigators also found false identification cards for California, Florida and New York, local police scanner coordinates and a full San Francisco Police Department uniform with a badge and duty belt, sheriff's Detective Greg Garrett said in an affidavit.

Whew! A full SFPD uniform, badge & gunbelt? Wonder who else was helping. Don't you have to be of a certain age to rent a storage locker?
And how did he steal the Lamborghini? Sounds a little over the top for a 17 year old by himself.
