Cedrick Barnes of Florence, South Carolina was apparently trying to offload some marijuana. Observing international drug dealer best practices, Barnes began calling everyone listed in his cell phone’s directory and – success- he found a buyer.

Unfortunately for Barnes, the potential buyer was actually his former probation officer. The officer set up a meet in a local parking lot and a Florence police officers completed the sale.

Barnes was then arrested on charges of possession of a controlled substance and possession of cocaine. Police also seized about half a pound of marijuana.
