Australian casino news keeps coming thick and fast. Crown Casino, the crown in the jewel of Aussie casino king James Packer, experienced a dash of The Fast And The Furious a few months back in a rare Ferrari theft incident that attracted worldwide headlines. Media Man and Gambling911 put you in the drivers seat with this Pink Panther meets Naked Gun and Heist calamity, which has finally seen the daring thief behind bars...

A Melbourne mug punter who stole a Crown Casino high roller VIP's $355,000 Ferrari from a carpark valet and took it for a spin to regional Broadmeadows in a theft described as "dumb" has been jailed for a period of 4 months.

Adam 'Racer' (Media Man tag) Ramsay, 32 years (mental age unknown), of Flemington, was passed the car keys to the Ferrari F430 Spider by a Crown parking attendant when he requested them about 1.30am on 14th May earlier this year. Well, they do say "Ask and they shall receive", and so did 'Ferrari Thief Man', now giving Crowns' 'Casino Shaft Man' a run for his money in the international headline stakes.

In brazen clown like action he drove to Broadmeadows police station parking the Spider beast nearby, to go onto report for bail thanks to a previous offence.

Leading Senior Constable Graham Andersen told Melbourne Magistrates Court that Ramsay then drove the Ferrari to a Broadmeadows service station where police spotted him refuelling the F430 at roughly 6.30am.

He advised the parking attendant aka "Virgin Valet" gave Ramsay the keys to the Ferrari even though he did not have a valet parking ticket. Woops a daisy maties.

Ramsay has now pleaded guilty to 1 count of theft of a motor vehicle.

Defence lawyer aka 'Legal Eagle' George "Don't Do It" (Media Man tag) Douglas said Ramsay had been conspicuous driving around Broadmeadows in the blood red mean machine.

"There aren't too many Ferrari's in Broadmeadows," 'Danger' Douglas said.

"It wasn't planned - it was dumb."

Douglas said Ramsay had gone to Broadmeadows police station in the car, which belonged to millionaire poker player pro Van Marcus.

Chief Magistrate Ian Gray described the offending as "bizarre" and said "someone's been far too slack in their duties at the casino".

He said Ramsay was "incredibly conspicuous" in the car.

Media Man understands casino security staff have undergone additional security training including 'Spot A Scam' and 'Spot A Thief' 101.

'Ferrari Thief Man' and 'Casino Shaft Man' are both heavily rumoured to be featured in the 'World's Dumbest Criminals' series which Australia's Network Nine has on the radar under the watchful eye of CEO David Gyngell, who now also shares a seat on the Crown Limited board of directors. Crown Casino also has a restaurant TV show in the works and its no coincidence that chef Gordon Ramsay has his Maze brand at the 'World Of Entertainment' Love your work Gyng.

Mr Gray sentenced ('Racer') Ramsay to 4 months' jail concurrent with a 35-month sentence imposed at the County Court last week for fraud-related offences.
