PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla.(WPBF) - A Port St. Lucie, Fla. man was bragging on his Facebook page about his life as a drug dealer and how easy it was for him to sell drugs in front of Martin County Sheriff's deputies, according to MCSO.

Deputies told WPBF-TV Taylor Harrison, 21, took a selfie of himself with stacks of drug cash and drugs, and a photo of an MCSO patrol car that pulled along side of him.

Deputies captured a photo with an undercover camera while Taylor tried to sell drugs to an undercover deputy.

"Since Taylor was kind of enough to share photos of us on his Facebook page, we thought we would share these photos of Taylor on our page,"  MCSO posted on its Facebook page Friday.

Taylor’s bond has been set at $55,500, deputies said.
