This story just made my Friday. Too bad for all your losses but its great to see the scumbag get caught. He can't come back to Bermuda because there are people are waiting for him. Karma's a ***** isn't it.

Chris blew it up, went back to the shop after hours, put the blown motor back in my buddies boat and took the other motor to use for the next race and never told him. This was all found out after the fact. My buddy went in his boat and saw the engine just sitting on the mounts, he did some checking and found the motor was destroyed! Then while my buddy was away at Christmas, the prop situation. The cops said he changed his story 4 times so they took him. So much for helping someone out!
what boat in Destin? just curious as i raced there and seem to remember hearing some motor stories around the pits.

It was in Key West for the races in November...He borrowed the one motor in exchange for rebuilding it had problems with the motor (Blew it up) and then came back while we were in Key West during the poker run and Stole a motor out of our race boat to go back to race and then said he never even started the original motor or run it because he did not want to hurt the fresh motor.

He was my old roomate. Has 2 different last names and SS numbers. Got back in to the country from Bermuda through Canada. He is a Pro-con artist, comes across real nice and honest, but is sneaky as hell. He split oweing me money while I was at a race. He also has worked with John Arruda, and stole from him as well. His ass needs to be deported!
Andy, you can have him back in Bermuda!
Hopefully he will get whats coming to him.............
