A Florida man is facing charges after he used a fake check to buy himself a luxurious car, police say.

The Walton County Sheriff’s Office announced the arrest of 42-year-old Casey William Kelley, this past Thursday. Kelley bought a Porsche 911 Turbo from a dealership in Destin using a fake check written for $139,203.05 on July 27. The vehicle was later reported stolen to the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office.

Once the jeweler discovered the check was fake, he reported it.

Deputies said, upon Kelley’s arrest, he told them he didn’t get the cashier’s checks from his bank but printed them out from his home computer.

Kelley now faces charges of grand theft and uttering a false banknote.
