(Newser) – Guy Fieri's $200,000 Lamborghini has been found, more than a year after it was stolen, and the story is quite something. Police found the yellow Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder on Saturday inside a storage locker rented by a 17-year-old boy, but their search of the storage locker had nothing to do with the car theft. Rather, they were investigating another crime: The teen suspect, dressed in black and riding on a motorcycle, allegedly shot at a young couple in a pickup truck last month.

Investigators were acting on information related to the shooting when they searched the San Francisco-area storage locker, where they found the car, the motorcycle, and the suspect (with a loaded gun), the Chronicle reports. The teen will likely face charges including attempted murder and possession of a stolen car. Authorities are still trying to determine if anyone else was involved in the car theft, as well as the motive for the shooting (a relative of one of the victims says it was over a girl). Fieri, for his part, thanked authorities in an email. Click for the full, strange tale.
