Pro tip: It may not be a great idea to post selfies on Facebook that show you dealing drugs ... particularly if you were doing so next to sheriff's deputies. That's what Taylor Harrison, a 21-year-old South Florida man, allegedly did before he was arrested last week, First Coast News reports. The Martin County Sheriff's Office then hilariously shared those photos on its Facebook page Friday after Harrison's arrest, along with a shot from an undercover camera capturing Harrison selling drugs to an undercover officer.

"The first photo Taylor took himself as he pulled alongside one of our deputies. The second photo is a selfie of Taylor with stacks of drug cash and drugs that he says he sells. Notice next to his car, is a patrol car," says MCSO. "The third shot is a MCSO undercover camera capturing Taylor selling drugs to one of us. He tells us, he is the best around!" Alas, the final photo "is Taylor’s booking photo at Martin County Jail after being arrested for ... you guessed it, selling drugs to our undercover narcotics detectives."
