Fox News

Authorities in Florida have arrested a man they say stole a BMW after trying to buy it with a food stamp debit card.

The Martin County Sheriff’s Office tells news outlets in a statement that 36-year-old Nicholas Jackson was arrested Friday and charged with grand theft auto.  

Nicholas Jackson.Deputies say Jackson was turned away at the Pompano Beach auto dealership after trying to buy the $60,000 car using his EBT card and a credit card.

However, deputies say the suspect returned the next night and stole the car along with keys from 60 other vehicles.

Deputies say they later found Jackson with the car and the keys after he ran out of gas because he didn’t have money to fill the tank.

It isn’t immediately clear if he has an attorney.

  1. “It isn’t immediately clear if he has an attorney.”

    What is clear, however, is that he needs a rubber room.

    Big Pharma?

    1. If there are any criminal defense attorneys out there who would be willing to accept EBT cards in lieu of payment, please respond asap to BR-549 Thank you.
