Memphis family busted with over $1 million in stolen super cars, cash, and drugs

In the normally quiet cul-de-sac of the Sutton Meadow subdivision in the outskirts of Memphis, TN, there was an unusual disturbance on the evening of Tuesday, April 20th. An array of local police officers were called to the residence of Angel Arias Machado, where they were able to recover a 2021 McLaren 720S worth $346,000, a 2019 Lamborghini Urus valued at $287,000, a stolen Nissan Maxima, large amounts of marijuana, $118,000, and two guns.

Angel Arias Machado and his parents, Luis Arias and Mayra Machado-Cutino were all taken into custody. Machado is charged with several counts of theft and is also facing weapon and drug charges, while his parents are charged with theft and altering vehicle serial numbers.

When the Auto Theft Task Force received information about the red Lamborghini being tracked to the residence at 236 Sutton Meadow, officers saw Machado drive the vehicle away from the home. During their search of the residence, Machado’s parents pulled up driving the stolen Nissan Maxima. Further investigation of the car revealed that its VIN had been stolen from Hertz Rental at Memphis International Airport in 2019. This trio’s crime spree did not end there.

The McLaren 720S was reported stolen from Hialeah, Florida, in 2022 and the Lamborghini was stolen from Atlanta, Georgia in January. Police later found a Maserati that had been stolen in Miramar, Florida on March 8. Another individual who was riding in the Lamborghini with Machado was also taken into custody but has not been charged.

The local neighborhood has always enjoyed admiring the high-end cars, but residents are reflecting now that they noticed suspicious activity with different cars in Machado’s garage and people coming and going frequently.

Machado and his parents will appear in court on Friday to face charges brought against them.
