Deputies: Man steals BMW tried to buy with food stamp card

- Deputies arrested a man they say stole a BMW after trying to buy it with food stamps and a credit card.

The Martin County Sheriff's Office posted photos of 36-year-old Nicholas Jackson being arrested Friday. He was charged with grand theft auto.

Deputies said Jackson sales associates at a Pompano Beach dealership denied Jackson service after he tried to buy a $60,000 car using his EBT card and a credit card.

Deputies said Jackson came back the next night and stole the car and keys to 60 other vehicles.

Deputies later found him with the car - and the keys - after he ran out of gas in Palm City. He told deputies he didn't have enough money to fill the gas tank.

He was held at the Martin County jail under a $20,000 bond.
