BOCA RATON, Fla., Jan. 22 (UPI) -- A 46-year-old man has been arrested 190 times in Florida, most recently for carjacking, police say.

Police in Boca Raton, Fla., said Henry Farrell was arrested this week for allegedly attempting to steal a truck from an unidentified man, the Palm Beach (Fla.) Post said Thursday.


Police spokeswoman Sandra Boonenberg said the arrest of Farrell following Tuesday night's theft did not mark anything new for area police.

"He's somebody we have been dealing with for years," Boonenberg said of Farrell. "He lives locally and apparently likes Boca Raton."

Boonenberg added that Farrell, whose first arrest came when he was 20, has been arrested in 12 Florida counties. Charges against Farrell have ranged from Tuesday's additional charges of possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia to a grand theft charge from Jan. 8.

"Pretty much everyone who works the road has dealt with him before. He's one of our regulars," Boonenberg told the Post.
