Posted on July 17, 2017 by Staff reports

A Fort Walton Beach man called the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office Sunday morning to report
that someone had stolen a baggie of cocaine and cash from his car.

32-year old David Blackmon of 119 Carson Drive, who identified himself as a drug dealer, told
the responding deputy that someone entered his car while it was parked at 400 Ed Street and stole
$50.00 and about a quarter ounce of cocaine off the center console.

The deputy however spotted cocaine still in that spot. He also found a crack pipe on the floorboard
by the driver’s door and seat and a crack rock on the center console by the cocaine. The money was
not located.

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