Barry Greenstein’s Car Stolen in San Diego
By Ian Hiaring, Rakeback.com Poker News Staff Writer
Last Saturday Team PokerStars Pro Barry Greenstein was in San Diego at a Marriot Hotel in the Mission Hills area, and like he’d done hundreds of times before he used valet parking. This time though, his Astin Martin DB9 wasn’t there when he showed up to retrieve it.
Apparently an imposter somehow managed to convince the staff at valet parking that the high-end luxury car was his and made off with the $200K car.
The search for the fake Barry Greenstein didn’t take too long though. The car was soon spotted back at the hotel by security and the imposter was promptly arrested. There was no damage to the vehicle, and in fact, it’s being reported that the fake Greenstein actually had the car detailed before returning to the scene of the crime.
Greenstein offered some insight as to the motive behind the crime via Twitter, stating that: “The perp’s mother claimed he has mental issues and somewhat believes it’s his car. He is now in the hospital.”
