According to Fox 29, 36-year-old Nicholas Jackson went to a BMW dealership in Pompano Beach, Florida and offered to buy a BMW X6 using a combination of his EBT card (food stamps) and credit cards. The value of the car? $60,000.
Management at the BMW dealership are said to have refused his business. Jackson came in three or four times Thursday trying to buy the BMW, but the dealership declined to accept Jackson’s credit and Electronic Benefits Transfer card. Shortly after, Jackson was charged with stealing a car.
On its Facebook page, the Martin County Sheriff’s department says that Jackson then broke into the dealership the next day and stole the BMW along with keys to 60 other vehicles. Police has caught Jackson shortly after when the stolen car ran out of gas.
Jackson has been charged with grand theft auto and is currently in jail with a $20,000 bond.
