IMBODEN, AR (KAIT) – A self-described "big marijuana dealer" owed hundreds of dollars reportedly took matters into his own hands Sunday and wound up in jail for his efforts.

Dylan Smith, 18, of Imboden is charged with residential burglary, theft of property and delivery of a controlled substance.

Lawrence County sheriff's deputies arrested Smith after an Imboden resident claimed someone broke into their home and stole $200.

A neighbor told investigators they saw Smith leaving the house around the time of the reported crime.

Deputies located Smith and took him for questioning.

After he was read his Miranda rights, Smith "admitted to going into the residence and taking the money," Sheriff Jody Dotson said.

Smith reportedly claimed he was owed the money from the sale of marijuana to a minor.

Smith went on to tell the deputies he was a "big marijuana dealer to all the Imboden area teenagers," according to Dotson.

Smith is currently being held in the Lawrence County Jail awaiting a bond hearing.
