David Blockmon arrested

OKALOOSA, Fl. — Don’t you just hate it when you’re reporting a crime to your local sheriff’s office only to be busted yourself?

That’s what happened to David Blackmon, who identifies himself as a drug dealer, officers said.

Over the weekend, he called the sheriff’s office in Okaloosa County, Florida, to report that someone had broken into his car and stolen $50 in cash and a quarter-ounce of cocaine.

Then he made the responding deputy’s job even easier.

The deputy found cocaine still in the car, a crack pipe on the car floor and a crack rock on the center console, the sheriff’s office said.

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