A Florida man has acquired a brand new Porsche 911 Turbo with a fake check he printed at home and got arrested after he attempted to buy some Rolex watches with another fake check.
According to the Palm Beach Post, the 42-year-old Casey William Kelley bought his Porsche 911 Turbo at a local car dealership with a fake check worth $140,000 on Tuesday.
Kelley was taken into custody after he tried to splash some cash on a couple of flashy Rolex watches at a jewellery shop in Miramar Beach with another fake check.
The jeweller told Kelley to wait until the check is cleared and then he can get his jewellery. It turned out the check was fake. The jeweller reported the incident to the police at the time when Kelley was already in custody for grand theft.
The dealers of the Porsche 911 Turbo reported the car to the police as stolen after they failed to clear the check which was found out be fake. Kelley was arrested for stealing a motor vehicle and uttering a fake bank note.
He admitted to police that he printed the checks on his home computer and will be facing charges.
