DAILYKENN.com -- Yeah, I'd also like to have a BMW. The problem is: I can't afford it. So I do without.
Police say Nicholas Jackson, 36, tried to buy a $60,000 BMW with an EBT card. EBT cards are the electronic equivalent to food stamps.
When the transaction failed, he allegedly stole the car.
It could be that those who believe they can buy cars with EBT cards lack intelligence. That lack of intelligence may also be a contributing factor to one's inability to earn sufficient income to purchase expensive automobiles.
That’s not what food stamps are for.
A Florida man who tried to purchase a speedy BMW SUV with his Electronic Benefits Transfer card and a credit card later decided to steal the car — but was caught when he ran out of gas, police said.
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.
