SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake City Police Department is asking the public for help identifying a suspect accused of stealing a Lamborghini from the Salt Lake City airport. The stolen Lamborghini is reported to be worth about $234,000. 

According to police, the investigation began on the evening of June 9, when the car’s owner reported the stolen Lamborghini to 911. The car was described as a 2023 blue Lamborghini Urus. It has a Utah license plate number G829TV.

SLCPD said that the owner of the car had parked it in the airport’s short-term parking lot on June 1. 

After a preliminary investigation, police believe the suspect flew into the airport on June 3. He went to the parking lot and began checking car doors, allegedly finding the Lamborghini unlocked with the keys inside. 

Video provided by SLCPD shows someone entering the vehicle and driving it away. 

Community members who may have information can reach out to SLCPD at 801-799-3000.

Protecting your car from theft 

Following the reporting of the stolen Lamborghini, police are reminding the public never to leave their keys in their car. 

Always lock your door and roll all windows up. Some drivers swear by leaving the windows rolled down just a bit, or “cracked,” in the summer. However, Garage Living reported that it won’t do much to keep your car cool. 

Additionally, Garage Living cited an ABC report where one thief said “a car with [the] window cracked opened was an unlocked car.”

SLCPD said that drivers should also avoid leaving valuables in their car. If you have to leave something in your car, Nationwide advises making sure it is hidden before you park. Experienced thieves often stake out parking lots, watching people hide items before leaving.
