Bizarre footage shows the moment a dopey suspected drug dealer threw thousands of pounds of cannabis from a window straight to the feet of waiting police officers. The shirtless man can be seen tipping boxes of marijuana from the window of a flat above a shop in the Erdington area of Birmingham on Monday morning (22/11). Meanwhile, stunned cops stand underneath and begin collecting the large stash of drugs into evidence bags with a dustpan and brush as it piles up on the pavement. Astonishing mobile phone footage captured the mounds of weed – part of a 20kg haul worth £6,000 – gathering on the street as well as the roof of the clothes shop. A 34-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession with the intent to supply cannabis following a raid at the address above Swag Emporium on Orphanage Road. The video was obtained by Birmz Is Grime and has been viewed more than 50,000 times in under 24 hours since it was uploaded to social media. Web users were quick to point out the fitting slogan of the store which has a large sign declaring: “High fashion for the high street”. As piles of cannabis rain down to the ground from the window, a man recording the footage says: “This geezer has got ounces and he’s throwing them out the window. “How much has he got? What the f**k. That stinks that does, you know. “Man’s dropped a box out the window. This is what my morning has consisted of, watching some geezer’s door get beat off. “All of his weed is across the floor. He threw a box straight out of the window.” At one point another man, possibly a plained-clothed police officer, tells the suspect: “You’re being filmed doing it, so this is pointless.” Commenting on the footage on Instagram, one woman said: “Doin illegal activities on top of a shop called swag is jus askin 4 trouble.” Another added: “Not really the best idea. He must have just panicked, those feds must not have believed what they were watching. didn’t need to lift a finger.” A third person put: “Imagine having a drugs den above a shop boasting about high fashion, lol.” Another wrote: “That’s pretty damning evidence right there landing right into their laps. What was he thinking?” A West Midlands Police spokesman said: “A 34-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of possession with the intent to supply cannabis. “His arrest follows the execution of an intelligence led warrant at the address on Orphanage Road, Erdington this morning (22/11). “A crossbow and three imitation guns were found at the flat, along with approximately £6,000, 20kg of cannabis, 24 cannabis plants, a large volume of suspected cannabis oil and other items. “The man remains in custody as our investigation develops. “Anyone with information that may help should message us via Live Chat on our website west-midlands.police.uk. “Alternatively, speak to the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111”
