Alleged drug dealer arrested on Facebook Live

Police in Florida raided the home of a suspected drug dealer while he was boasting of his wealth on Facebook Live.

Breon Hollings, 22, was recording himself in a live stream on the social media site as Jacksonville Sherriff’s officers prepared to apprehend him.

The profanity-laden video features Hollings waving bank notes at the camera and bragging that “this s*** don’t stop man” until he realises that the police have arrived at his residence.

After Hollings disappears off camera, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s office can be heard forcing entry into his home.

The officers can be heard arresting Hollings and armed officers are visible searching the property.

According to Action News Jax, Hollings now faces charges of possession of a controlled substance, possession of cocaine, possession of paraphernalia for the manufacture or delivery of drugs and possession of a weapon or ammunition by a convicted felon.

Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office claimed the video did not lead to the raid, which had been planned previously.

Action News Jax says the man is expected to see a judge in three weeks.
