According to the Miami Herald, David Blackmon allegedly told deputies with the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s office that a thief had broken into his car and stolen $50 in cash in addition to a quarter ounce of his prized cocaine,
Authorities confirmed that the items seemed to be missing from where the 35-year-old said he had put them, but on the bright side, the deputies were able to help him locate a second bag of coke that he had left on the center console, at which point they began reading Blackmon his rights.
In Deputy Dennis Fields’ arrest report, he noted, “Blackmon asked if I knew the cocaine was there, why did I let him keep talking.”
In addition to the baggie, the deputies also found a crack pipe and crack rock inside the car.
Blackmon was arrested and charged with resisting an officer without violence for allegedly refusing to follow commands, possessing drug paraphernalia and possessing cocaine, which is a felony charge.
He was released Monday on a $4,000 bond.
