US Marshals Set to Auction YouTuber “Omi in a Hellcat’s” Multimillion-Dollar Car Collection

A Lamborghini, adorned with Power Rangers-themed imagery, once the prized jewel in a prominent YouTuber’s extravagant car collection, is now among the 32 vehicles scheduled for auction following the content creator’s conviction on charges of fraud and various other crimes.

Bill Omar Carrasquillo, widely recognized as “Omi in a Hellcat” on YouTube, received a five-and-a-half-year prison sentence in March for offenses related to a far-reaching criminal enterprise that encompassed cable TV piracy, access device fraud, wire fraud, money laundering, and substantial copyright infringement, as per a statement released by the US Marshals Service.

In addition to his incarceration, Carrasquillo faces a $30 million forfeiture money judgment and must fulfill a $15 million restitution obligation, the agency has confirmed.

Among the eye-catching pieces up for auction is the Lamborghini Aventador, wrapped in the distinctive Power Rangers design, which had already garnered a bid of $387,000.00 by Friday night.

The live auction, scheduled for October 13, will feature more than 55 of Carrasquillo’s exclusive and luxury automobiles, motorcycles, ATVs, and various other vehicles. While the physical auction will occur at the B&O Railroad Museum in Baltimore, online bidding has already commenced.

Jewelry confiscated from Carrasquillo will also be auctioned online separately. This collection includes the sizable diamond-studded pendant often seen in his videos, bearing the inscription “Omi in a Hellcat” surrounding a snarling cat emblem.

A total of 57 vehicles will be sold through Apple Auctioneering Co. in collaboration with the US Marshals Service. In addition to the Power Rangers-themed Lamborghini, the assortment comprises three additional Lamborghinis, a Bentley, a Mercedes-Benz, four Jeeps, three Dodge Charger Hellcats, and an assortment of ATVs and motorcycles.

On his YouTube channel, Carrasquillo chronicled his journey in the realm of luxury cars, inviting viewers to join him as he acquired new vehicles or showcased his remarkable collection. His channel boasts over 818,000 subscribers, with some videos amassing over a million views.

“I wanted to wrap this car like my childhood,” he expressed in a 2019 video discussing his Lamborghini Aventador.

According to a Justice Department news release, Carrasquillo and his co-defendants orchestrated a “large-scale internet protocol television (IPTV) piracy scheme in which they illicitly obtained cable television accounts and then distributed copyrighted content to thousands of their subscribers.”
