Robber ties up woman, steals Aston Martin from $35 million Coral Gables home
Aston Martin Vantage stolen, later recovered
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Police are looking for an armed robber who tied up a woman during a home invasion and stole her Aston Martin from her $35 million home in Coral Gables.
Police responded to a call about an armed home invasion at 110 Arvida Parkway in Gables Estates about 11:41 p.m. Thursday.
The homeowner told police the masked robber confronted her as she walked out of a bathroom, ordering her onto the floor.
"[He] politely asked the homeowner to lay down on the ground where the homeowner was bound with her hands and feet," said Coral Gables police spokesman Kelly Denham.
The robber also blindfolded her, then ransacked the home and stole her black, 2011 Aston Martin Vantage. The car was later found at Southwest 146th Lane and 126th Place, but no items stolen from the home were found inside it.
It's unclear what was stolen from the home as police were still cataloging missing items Friday evening. The homeowner wasn't injured.
"The emotional trauma is something she will probably never forget," said Denham.
Police aren't sure how the robber got into the gated community, but because the streets are public, guards outside let drivers in after taking their license plate number.
"We don't know if he came by boat," said Denham.
The home has reportedly been used in "Burn Notice" and other television and movie shoots. It's currently for sale.
If you have any information about the robbery, call Coral Gables police at 305-442-1600 or Miami-Dade Crimestoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
