  • SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) — A Sonoma County teenager remained jailed Sunday after he was arrested on suspicion of using stolen credit cards to rent a $240,000 sports car and a $12 million vacation home.

    Mohanned Halaweh, 19, was arrested Wednesday after he was pulled over while driving the 2012 McLaren coupe he had rented for $13,000 and was subsequently reported stolen by its owner, Sonoma County Sheriff’s Sgt. Sgt. Michael Raasch tells the San Francisco Chronicle.

    Halaweh also paid $27,000 to rent an estate in Glen Ellen, Raasch said.

    Prosecutors have charged him with four felonies — credit card fraud, receiving stolen property, identity theft and vehicle theft — along with an enhancement charge of being in possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

    Another 19-year-old man who was a passenger in the McLaren also was arrested and could face charges, Raasch said.

    The Santa Rosa Press Democrat identified Halaweh as a former standout basketball player at a Sebastopol high school.
