SARATOGA (WNE) — It’s not often the Wyoming Highway Patrol pulls over a pair of Lamborghinis, but that’s exactly what happened recently in Carbon County.

On May 26, Rawlins-area troopers received a report of two rental vehicles which were likely stolen heading toward Carbon County on Interstate 80.

“The rental company reported two males rented Lamborghinis in the Salt Lake City area,” said Trooper Ryan Gerdes. “The drivers then left Utah in violation of the contract, exceeded the allowable miles, were speeding, and later disconnected the trackers when told to return the Lamborghinis. Troopers stopped the vehicles at milepost 216 on I80 eastbound.”

Gerdes said the drivers were identified as 35-year-old Andrew Blackman and 32-year-old Dassman Fadil, who used false names to rent the vehicles.

“After confirming the vehicles were reported stolen, troopers arrested Blackman and Fadil for possession of stolen property,” Gerdes said.

The two men are currently being held in the Carbon County Detention Center until their initial hearing.

The rental car company estimated the value of one Lamborghini at $343,000 and the other at $243,000.
