Oh, *that* Ferrari, Officer
Australian man takes Ferrari for six-hour joy ride

Published: 5:13PM BST 14 May 2010

An Australian man took a millionaire's Ferrari for a six-hour joy ride after being handed the keys by a casino valet, a court has heard.

Adam Ramsay, 32, left Crown Casino in Melbourne, reportedly convincing the valet he had lost his parking ticket, before being given the keys to the luxury red 275,000 ($A451,000) F430 spider, Melbourne Magistrates' Court heard.

Police eventually tracked down the thief at a petrol station north of Melbourne city centre, after he had just filled the convertible with fuel.

A Victoria police spokesman said the only damage to the car was around the petrol cap.

The car was towed to a police holding yard to be examined by forensic officers. Ramsay has been charged with one count of motor vehicle theft.

Earlier, a spokesman for the casino earlier said when people lose their tickets, they are asked for identification and a valid driver's livence. He did not comment on whether the alleged offender presented a ticket or identification to the parking attendant.

Van Marcus, a professional poker player who owned the car, said: "They spend millions of dollars watching players' chips and cards in play, but as soon as it comes to the public's property there is a lack of security."

I'll be surprised if that valet is even lucky to get a job digging ditches in the future.
