If you say you make a living selling drugs, it's probably not a good idea to report your stolen cocaine to the police.

However, that's exactly what a Fort Walton Beach man did, according to the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office.

The department says 32-year old David Blackmon called Sunday morning and reported that a baggie of cocaine along with cash was taken from his car.

Blackmon identified himself as a drug dealer to a responding deputy and said someone broke into his car and stole $50 and about a quarter ounce of cocaine from the center console, the sheriff's office said in a Facebook post.

The deputy turned up cocaine in that very spot along with a crack pipe and crack rock, according to the sheriff's office.

Blackmon got a trip to jail and was charged with possession of cocaine, resisting arrest without violence, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
