The owner of the car -- a white, 2018 Ferrari GTC4Lusso T -- said his car was parked in the driveway on the side of the home, unlocked and with the keys still inside the vehicle, when it was stolen Nov. 4, The Dallas Morning News reported. There also was about $2,000 of pain medication in the car, the owner told police.

The Ferrari, which can reach speeds of 199 mph, was recovered Monday, Lt. Lance Koppa, a Highland Park Department of Public Safety spokesman, told the newspaper.

Police found an open beer can in the console of the Suburban, and the SUV had damage on the right front and back quarters of the vehicle, WFAA reported. A police report said the SUV was registered to a man in Fort Worth, but did not say if the owner was a suspect, the television station reported.

The Suburban was impounded by police, the Morning News reported.
