A drug dealer made a bad move by calling police on his neighbor, according to police reports from Florida.

Authorities in Florida said that the man called the sheriff's office to complain about his neighbors and ended up getting arrested for possession of 3.8 grams of marijuana.

The Office of the Monroe County Sheriff said that a deputy visited the home of Michael Csernik, 77, in Marathon Keys RV Park on Saturday, after a complaint of a large number of cars coming and going from a home and said they suspected drug sales.

The deputy attempted to enter the home, but left after there was no answer. However, the deputy returned an hour later, when Csernik called the sheriff's office to complain about his neighbors taking pictures of cars which visited his home.

When asked about why the cars stopped at his home, Csernik said he had a lot of friends.

Csernik and his 51-year-old son, were sitting on the front steps when the deputy arrived, consented to a search of the home and deputies found marijuana in several plastic bags along with a scale.

Csernik, who told officers that his son had no knowledge of the marijuana, was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of a felony quantity of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Deputies said they also seized $1,363 in cash, which is allegedly proceeds of the sale of marijuana.
