One Florida man was able to ride in style…for at a least a little bit…until he was arrested and charged with grand theft of a motor vehicle and uttering a false banknote.

42-year-old Casey William Kelley used a fake check that he printed himself to purchase a $140,000 Porsche. After he bought the car, he attempted to purchase three Rolex watches – using a check of course.

Kelley handed over a ‘fake’ cashier’s check and drove off of the Destin, Florida car lot in his brand new Porsche 911 Turbo. Living the high life didn’t last too long though, as the car was reported stolen two days later to the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office.

After purchasing the car, Kelley drove over to a luxury watch retailer and handed over a fraudulent check for $61,521. However, the jeweler kept the watches until they could determine if the check would clear, the sheriff’s office said.

After the arrest, Kelley allegedly told authorities that the checks had come from his home computer, not the bank.

Kelley is now in jail. He has no Porsche and he never received the watches.
