Is this selfie-incrimination?

Taylor Harrison allegedly wanted to make a point about how easy it was to sell drugs in Port St. Lucie, Florida -- even when deputies were nearby.

So Harrison, 21, took to social media. He posted a selfie with stacks of drug cash, drugs, and a photo of a Martin County Sheriff's Office patrol car that pulled along side of him, WPBF-TV reports.

The Facebook photos were later seen by MCSO deputies. They sent an undercover officer to buy drugs from Harrison and then arrested him on charges of selling narcotics, CBS Tampa reports.

Harrison remained in Martin County Jail on $55,500 bond.

Harrison isn't the first alleged criminal to be arrested after posting objectionable selfies.

In December, Dupree Johnson, 19, was arrested in Palm Beach County, Florida, after a sheriff came across his Instagram feed and saw pictures he had posted showing him surrounded by guns, drugs and jewelry.

Police investigated his stash, and eventually charged him with 142 felony counts.
