Drug Dealer Arrested After Calling Cops to Report Theft of His Cocaine

not-so-bright calls cops about stolen cocain

A not-too-bright Fort Walton Beach, Florida drug dealer was struck with the brilliant idea to call the police over the theft of cash and cocaine from his car.

35-year-old David Blackmon (a convicted felon) was in the process of showing the officer who responded where he had kept his stash when the cop noticed a crack rock and a pipe in the vehicle.

Needless to say, Mr. Blackmon was promptly arrested.

The Smoking Gun reports:

JULY 18–A Florida man who “identified himself as a drug dealer” called police early Sunday to report the theft of cash and a small bag of cocaine from his vehicle, according to an arrest report.

Cops say that David Blackmon, 35, complained that an auto burglar swiped $50 and “about one-quarter of an ounce of cocaine” from his car, which was parked near Blackmon’s Fort Walton Beach residence.

While Blackmon was showing an Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office deputy where his cash and coke had been, the cop noticed a second “plastic baggie containing suspected cocaine on the center console.”

A further examination of Blackmon’s ride, cops say, turned up a crack pipe on the vehicle’s floorboard and a crack rock on the center console. The contents of the plastic baggie, the crack rock, and the pipe all tested positive for cocaine.

Blackmon, pictured above, apparently was miffed that the police theft investigation quickly morphed into a narcotics case. The self-described drug dealer, an officer noted, “asked if I knew the cocaine was there, why did I let him keep talking.”

Blackmon, a convicted felon, was charged with cocaine possession, resisting arrest, and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was released from the county jail yesterday afternoon upon posting $4000 bond.
