PORT ST. LUCIE , Fla., May 12 (UPI) -- A Florida man who allegedly posted on Facebook about his drug dealing exploits may be wishing that he just kept quiet about what he was up to.

The Martin County Sheriff's Office Facebook page says that Taylor Harrison posted photos of himself selling drugs near officers in an apparent attempt to troll deputies.

"These are photos of 21-year old Taylor Harrison of Port St. Lucie bragging on his Facebook page about his life as a drug dealer and how easy it is for him to sell drugs in front of our deputies," the MCSO wrote on Facebook.

"The first photo Taylor took himself as he pulled alongside one of our deputies. The second photo is a selfie of Taylor with stacks of drug cash and drugs that he says he sells. Notice next to his car, is a patrol car. The third shot is a MCSO undercover camera capturing Taylor selling drugs to one of us. He tells us, he is the best around!"

MCSO deputies were none too pleased about the 21-year-old's postings and he was arrested.

"The photo to the right is Taylor's booking photo at Martin County Jail after being arrested for...you guessed it, selling drugs to our undercover narcotics detectives. 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."

Harrison's bond was set at $55,500.
