OKALOOSA, FL (CNN) - Authorities in the Florida panhandle said a self-described drug dealer accidentally busted himself.

The Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office said they got a call over the weekend from David Blackmon.

They said he called 911 to report someone had broken into his car and stolen $50 in cash and a quarter-ounce of cocaine.

The responding deputy searched the car and found cocaine, a crack pipe and a crack rock on the center console.

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