Report: Wanted Atlanta woman used fake ID to test drive BMW

An Atlanta woman wanting to test drive a BMW made one mistake that led to her arrest, according to a South Florida newspaper.

She used the stolen identification of a New Jersey woman, including date of birth and Social Security number, the Sun Sentinel of Fort Lauderdale reported.

The woman was really Olivia Gibbs, 58, of Atlanta, wanted out of Gwinnett County on fraud and forgery charges, the newspaper reported. Gibbs attempted to provide the car dealership with her real driver’s license, but by then it was too late. At her first court appearance after her arrest, Gibbs told Broward County Judge John “Jay” Hurley she wasn’t trying to buy a BMW, the newspaper reported.

“No, I know you weren’t, ma’am. You were just shopping around with somebody else’s ID, somebody else’s Social Security number, someone else’s documents,” Hurley said. “I’m sure you were just out looking at cars that day with no intent to purchase.”

Gibbs was charged with grand theft and fraud in the Hollywood, Fla., incident. Her bond was set at $75,000, booking records show. Gibbs is expected to be extradited to Georgia.
