    Nicholas Jackson, 36, was given a free ride to jail by the Martin County Sheriff's Office.
    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.

    Police said the stolen BMW was a $60,000 car.
    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 say Jackson stole some 60 sets of keys from the dealership.
    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.

    yeah many blacks.... and a whole lot of white trash, too. Florida's insanity comes in all colors, which is why I love the place. It's a little bit crazy down there.
