Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : Two men have been charged with stealing luxury cars worth over $1 million throughout Riverside County, according to the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office. The suspects have been identified as Kendall Jamison Clark, 25, of Murrieta, and Gabriel Dean Watters, 47, of San Diego. They are accused of a multi-million dollar scheme involving the theft and sale of luxury rental cars.

The investigation began in September when the owners of the stolen cars contacted authorities to report that vehicles rented by Clark had never been returned. It was discovered that Clark had paid for a one-week rental and picked up the vehicles from an owner in Lake Matthews. However, when the owners tried to report the theft, they realized that their names had been removed from the vehicles’ titles.

The stolen cars include a 2022 Lamborghini Urus, a 2022 Tesla Model Y, a 2022 Chevrolet Corvette, a 2021 Porsche Boxter, a 2021 Lamborghini Aventador, a 2021 Porsche Cayenne, a 2020 Lamborghini Urus, a 2021 Jeep Wrangler, a 2017 BMW i8, and a 2015 Lamborghini Huracán.

Further investigation revealed that Watters was purchasing the stolen cars from Clark at significantly lower prices than their actual value. Watters would meet up with Clark at various locations in Riverside County, pay him for a group of cars, and then attempt to sell them again, including in Mexico.

Clark was arrested in San Diego on October 18 and has been charged with 18 felonies, including embezzlement and car theft. He pleaded not guilty to the charges and was released on $250,000 bail. His court appearance is scheduled for December 14.

On November 27, Watters was arrested at the San Diego International Airport as he was trying to board a flight to San Francisco. He is currently being held on $1 million bail, and a court hearing is set for December 8.

Fortunately, the stolen vehicles have been returned to their rightful owners. However, Clark is still under investigation for other crimes. Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact Detective Matt Guzzino of the Riverside Auto-Theft Interdiction Detail task force.

This case highlights the ongoing issue of car theft and the importance of reporting suspicious activities to law enforcement. Authorities are working diligently to combat this type of organized crime and bring those responsible to justice.
