(Scroll down for video) Police in Florida, are grateful that a drug dealer recorded himself selling drugs.

Like many homeowners, 26-year old Juan Dejesus Cabral of Stuart, recorded of all his guests, claiming that he was fearful of being robbed.

His problem is that he sold illegal drugs from his home. His excellent quality and clear video cameras provided detectives with great evidence of his illegal activity and of his customers’ identities.

Police warned those customers on Facebook that they may soon be arrested.

“If you purchased or sold drugs at a home in Fishermans Cove on SE Norfolk Avenue in Stuart, you may soon be selected for a future booking photo.”

The Martin County Sheriff’s Narcotics Unit along with the SWAT Team served a search warrant at the home located at 85 Norfolk Avenue.

Detectives said they found crack cocaine, hydromorphone, and drug paraphernalia inside the home.

To their pleasant surprise, detectives found 6 surveillance cameras mounted throughout the property, each recording round the clock.

One of those cameras was pointed directly at a shed in his yard. When police entered that shed, they found more illegal narcotics.

The other cameras were pointed at the entrance and exit points of the property, capturing weeks worth of customers buying drugs, police said.

“Detectives will now go through the footage to see who will be featured in future booking photos,” authorities said.

Cabral was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine, possession of Hydromorphone and possession of drug paraphernalia.

His girlfriend, 20-year old Julie Rembert, who was also in the home at the time, was arrested for possession.
