Man allegedly tried to buy a $60,000 BMW with Food Stamps, which he then stole after being denied
The purpose of food stamps is to help low-income households make ends meet but Nicholas Jackson is said to have taken contrary view. Last Thursday, the 36-year old man tried to fund the purchase of a $60,000 BMW with his Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card and a credit card.And that’s only half the story, as after managers at the auto dealership in Pompano Beach, Florida, declined Jackson’s business, he returned the following night and stole the BMW X6 he so desperately wanted…along with the keys to 60-other vehicles!
Jackson didn’t manage to go far, as according to the Martin County Sheriff's Office, he ran out of gas and money to fill his tank at the intersection of SW Baneberry Trail and SW High Meadow Avenue in Palm City, where abandoned the BMW.
He was caught shortly after and following a free ride to the Martin County Jail, he was charged with grand theft auto and is currently being held on a $20,000 bond.
