(Scroll down for video) A man in Pennsylvania, handed prosecutors an easy case against himself.

Police said that the drug dealer sent a text message to a prosecutor after he mistook him for a client.

Luzerne County prosecutors said that Assistant District Attorney Jill Matthews, received a text message from 29-year-old John Raimondo, using slang that made it obvious that he was texting about a drug deal.

Matthews also later received a photo of a plastic bag containing a green substance on a scale.

The prosecutor, who specializes in drug prosecutions, contacted Kingston police and told him to facilitate a meeting outside a shopping center in Edwardsville.

When Raimondo showed up to the location, officers were already there waiting for him and he was arrested.

Raimondo was arraigned and released on $10,000 bail. However, he failed to show up at his preliminary hearing. Authorities have now filed a warrant for his arrest.
