Say What Now? Florida Man Arrested for Stealing $60,000 BMW He Previously Tried to Buy with His EBT Card


Nicholas Jackson thought he could visit his neighborhood BMW dealership and pay for one with his Electronic Benefits Transfer card.

When that didn’t work, he thought he’d just go ahead and steal it.

via NY Daily News:

Nicholas Jackson, 36, showed up to a Pompano Beach dealership with little in the way of currency and was sent away, the Martin County Sheriff’s Office said. But the next day, the business was burglarized, and the owner found the $60,000 BMW X-6 and 60 sets of keys missing, police said.

Cops later caught up to Jackson in Palm City, some 70 miles north of Pompano, where authorities say he drove until the car ran out of gas. They also found the BMW with the gas tank on empty.

Jackson got a ride to the Martin County Jail, where he’s charged with grand theft auto and held on $20,000 bond.

We don’t even know what to say about this.
