A drug dealer has been jailed after he was caught peddling drugs by his own car's dashboard camera. Wales Online reports that Scott Curtis of Graiglwyd, South Wales, was stopped by police while driving his yellow Ford Focus in September 2018.
As cops approached his car, the 45-year-old tried to throw a small bag of cocaine and heroin out of the window. He was arrested and taken into custody. A search of his home also revealed cannabis plants.
However, it was dashcam footage from his car that sealed his fate.
According to the Guardian, police found two hours of footage showing some of his latest drug deals.

According to police, Curtis appeared at Merthyr Crown Court on July 19 this year. He has been jailed for two years and six months after pleading guilty to possessing cocaine and possessing heroin with intent to supply and producing cannabis.
