German resident Sven Pohl had attempted to share a picture of his toast with his Facebook friends however, the scorched images of Adolf Hitler that he had charred onto dozens of slices of bread caused the 37-year-old neo-Nazi problems, the British Mirror reported Monday.

Pohl was in violation of German law, which forbids public displays of anything pertaining to Nazis and their leaders.

It wasn't just Pohl's Hitler-emblazoned toast that caught the police's eye. He had another social media post praising the Nazi leader.

Police eventually raided Pohl's house where they discovered that he was a drug dealer.

Pohl is due to be sentenced for his social media images of toast bearing the image of Hitler along with his drug dealing.
