Finks jailed over Lamborghini theft


Heavily tattooed and well-built, the bikie walked into the Melbourne car dealership, looking for the owner and his bright yellow Lamborghini. He asked him to "go for a little walk". Srecko Lorbek, owner of Lorbek Luxury Cars at Port Melbourne, then had his head rammed into the back windscreen of a car. His attacker, Finks sergeant-at-arms Richard Michail, demanded the keys to his Lamborghini, while his accomplice, fellow Finks bikie Matthew Ward, waited outside. Michail made Mr Lorbek an offer: $50,000 in return for the car. He then drove off and parked the $400,000 luxury car outside the Finks clubhouse at Port Melbourne, where it was found undamaged by police. Michail, 38, and Ward, 34, were jailed on Monday for the brazen daylight robbery in May 2010. Victorian County Court Judge Mark Dean said the pair, found guilty of robbery after a trial, had shown no remorse and had poor prospects of rehabilitation. "This was a brazen offence and your conduct must be denounced by this court," the judge said. "Persons carrying out their lawful business must be protected by this court from acts of intimidation and violence of this type." Judge Dean said Michail had 18 prior convictions, while Ward had 19. He said Michail would find prison onerous due to injuries he suffered in a motorcycle accident in December, in which he fractured ribs and lacerated his spleen. Michail was jailed for a maximum three years and six months, with a non-parole period of two years. Ward, who the judge said played a secondary role in the robbery, was sentenced to three years with a non-parole period of 18 months.
