The Wyoming Highway Patrol says it found two Colorado men trying to smuggle a pair of stolen Lamborghinis through southern Wyoming last month.

Andrew Adam Blackman, 35, and Dassman Fadil, 32, each face one count of felony theft, which is punishable by up to 10 years in prison and $10,000 in fines, on suspicion of shutting off the GPS trackers on two Utah rental Lamborghinis and smuggling them through Wyoming. ... Their case rose to the felony-level Carbon County district Court on Thursday.

The investigation started May 26 at about 11:34 a.m., when Wyoming Highway Patrol Trooper Jay Scheel, of the Rawlins division, received a complaint via dispatch that one white Lamborghini and one green Lamborghini were speeding through Wyoming on Interstate 80, though they weren’t supposed to leave Utah, according to an evidentiary affidavit filed in the case.

The reporting party, the cars’ owner Joseph Lober of New Port Richey, Florida, had reported both cars stolen from the North Salt Lake, Utah, area, the affidavit says. ... Lober told law enforcement he’d not heard from a third and fourth man, also from Colorado, who had rented the cars. ... The men who had originally rented the cars are not charged in a Wyoming criminal court. It is unclear if they are different men or false identities masking the men now charged.

Identity theft. Speeding. An attempt to smuggle two supercars worth over half a million dollars across state lines. ... It’s not a plot from a Nicholas Cage movie, but instead the allegations outlined in court documents obtained by the Denver Gazette, following Wyoming Highway Patrol's arrests of two Colorado suspects last month.

Andrew Adam Blackman, 35, and Dassman Fadil, 32, are each charged with one count of felony theft, according to court documents. The charge carries a potential penalty of up to 10 years in prison and fines up to $10,000, per Wyoming state law. ... The vehicles reported stolen were two Lamborghinis, a 2019 white Lamborghini Huracan Performante with a stated value of $320,000 and a green 2015 Lamborghini Huracan with a stated value of $243,000.

The white Lamborghini is owned by Joey Lober, a CEO and serial entrepreneur who splits his time between Florida and Utah, while the green Lamborghini is owned by Keaton Hoskins, a TV personality known as “The Muscle” on the “Diesel Brothers,” a show on Discovery Plus.

“(The suspects) curbed my wheels, they cracked my front bumper, they ripped out all (the electronics),” Lober told the Denver Gazette. “I mean, they, they really hurt my car to be honest. I cried like a little baby.” ... Lober and Hoskins privately own the vehicles but contracted them to a company in Salt Lake City called Onyx Rentals as a business venture.
