A man was arrested and charged with illegal drug possession related charges after he allegedly tried to pay his water bill with cocaine, according to police reports in Florida.

Florida authorities announced today that cocaine cannot be used to pay water bills or any other bills for that matter.

The Deltona Water office of Florida, said that a customer tried to use illegal drugs to settle his account.

Employees were surprised when the man entered the office of the company on Monday morning, and handed them an envelope with white powder inside.

Fearing that it might be a toxic chemical, the building was evacuated.

The Sheriff’s Office of Volusia County, and a hazardous materials team, were called to check the substance.

“Interestingly, it was just crack,” Sheriff spokesperson Brandon said.

The man’s identity has not been revealed yet, and the investigation is still ongoing, he said.
