A drug dealer was arrested after he called police to report that someone stole his drugs and his money.

David Blackmon, 32, of Florida, called the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office, claiming that someone stole a bag of drugs and money from his car.

When officers arrived, Blackmon allegedly identified himself as a drug dealer and told officers that a thief stole $50 in cash and a quarter of an ounce of cocaine from the car while it was parked.

When the deputies walked over to the vehicle to investigate, they found the cocaine along with crack pipe on the floor next to the driver’s door.

Officers questioned Blackmon before pointing out the drugs were still in his scar.

According to the arrest report, Blackmon asked the officer why they allowed him to continue talking if they saw cocaine in the car.

When officers attempted to arrest him, Blackmon resisted.

Blackmon was charged with possession of cocaine, resisting arrest without violence, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
