Home / News / Fail: Thief “Doubly Dumb” Takes Same Bentley Twice


Bentley Bandit Robert Ponti

Most folks can understand stealing a car. After all, who hasn’t boosted a ride to get somewhere quick? However, when you steal the same car twice in a four-day period, you really are just stealing to steal.

Robert Ponti, 46, is one such compulsive thief. Cops in Brea, California said that Ponti stole a 2005 Bentley Coupe and then parked it outside his home. Well, the cops found the car and arrested the thief. Then, just three days later, the cops noticed the same luxury coupe parked outside the same residence and discovered that Ponti had stolen the Bentley again, this time from a tow yard!
