Man steals BMW after trying to buy it with food stamps

STUART, Fla. (Source: AP) — Authorities in the state of Florida have arrested a man they claim stole a BMW after he tried to buy it with a food stamp debit card.
The Martin County Sheriff’s Office tells media outlets in a statement that the 36-year-old, one Nicholas Jackson, was arrested Friday and subsequently charged with grand theft auto.

Deputies say that Jackson was turned away at the auto dealership in Pompano Beach after he attempted to buy the $60,000 car using his EBT card in conjunction with a credit card.
After being unsuccessful, deputies say the suspect returned the next night and stole the car. But that’s not all. He also got away with keys from 60 other vehicles.
Deputies say they later found Jackson in possession of the car and the keys to the other vehicles  after he ran out of gas. Apparently he didn’t have money to fill the tank.
It isn’t immediately clear if he has an attorney, or if he is sane.
