Social Media Leads Police to Alleged Drug Dealer: MDPD

A social media post landed a Hialeah man in jail, according to Miami-Dade Police.

19-year-old Christopher Franco was in bond court Friday, accused of selling marijuana and advertising his illegal business on social media.

Undercover detectives caught Franco after they contacted him to set-up a deal for $20 worth of marijuana. They said he instructed them to a McDonald's in Hialeah.

Authorities said during the sting operation, Franco told them his real intention was to trade the drugs for a ride to his girlfriend's house.

He was being held on $18,000 bond due to a prior car burglary arrest. It's unknown whether he has an attorney.
