SONOMA COUNTY, CA – With a $240,000 sports car and $12 million vacation home, you’re either a really big deal or a really big phony.

That’s allegedly the case with Mohannad Halaweh. Police say the 19-year-old rented the fancy stuff with stolen credit cards! Now he’s being nailed for stealing a car, and identities.

Cops say the teenager was caught when the car rental company discovered the scheme, reported the ride stolen and then that not-so-subtle 2012 McLaren was seen driving down the street.

Halaweh’s being held on one million dollars bail.
