Pants up! Don’t loot!
The drug epidemic in the United States has created chaos across the country in the past decade. The situation in Florida has gotten so bad that Governor Rick Scott recently declared the opioid epidemic a public health emergency.
In 2015 alone, almost 4,000 Floridians died from drug overdoses.
But that hasn’t stopped drug dealers from continuing to cash in by selling these harmful drugs to hopeless addicts. However, one 22-year-old dealer in Jacksonville just got a swift dose of payback courtesy of our boys in blue.
Breon Hollings was posting a Facebook Live video to brag about his drug lord success when things went terribly wrong for him.
This video is a nice, strong message that crime really doesn’t pay.
From The Daily Wire:
In the video (below) a shirtless Hollings is seen babbling to the camera from inside of a bathroom while fanning out a large sum of money. “You f–k n–gers need to catch up. We gettin money over here, man,” he tells his viewers, adding, “We got so much of this sh-t, man, ya’ll already know the story.”
Action News Jax reports, things quickly turned sour for the young entrepreneur when he looked out of the window and suddenly ran out of the room.
“This is Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office. We have a search warrant,” can be heard in the video, followed by a series of loud noises.
A police officer eventually walks into view of the camera. Officers are seen going in and out of the room before the video ends.
The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said the raid was planned, and the video did not lead to the raid.
Here’s the criminal’s mugshot after he was taken into custody.

After searching the home, officers discovered a treasure trove of illegal possessions, including a handgun, ammunition, oxycodone pills, crack cocaine, and drug paraphernalia.
Hollings is now an internet sensation. His Facebook Live video has been viewed over a million times, but his newfound fame will not be enough to save him from the charges he now faces.
Possession of a controlled substance, possession of cocaine and possession of paraphernalia for the manufacture or delivery of drugs are among the offenses he is being charged with.
The young dealer may be in for some tough times ahead, but least he has a shirt on now. Too bad it says “Department of Corrections” on it!
