    The thief had no time to enjoy the luxurious vehicle, immediately hitting other cars and ending up crashed inside a catering facility. Police have made no mention of collateral damage or causalities.

    A grand theft offender in New York City's Manhattan borough on Wednesday stole a car registered under the name of Qatar’s general consul, according to the New York Post.

    The car was reportedly parked on East 51st Street and First Avenue, with the keys inside, when the thief noticed it, at around 10 a.m. According to police, the driver was washing the car at the time.

    The risky racer crashed into ten other cars and smashed into an outdoor eatery before being apprehended.

    Police said that the offender is currently under arrest, but no official charges have been brought yet. The thief was delivered to Bellevue Hospital with minor injuries.
