Freshly sentenced to almost four years in prison, a drug dealer’s bungling antics were caught on camera as he leaped through a bush and into a river in a failed escape from police. The incident occurred on August 21 last year in St. Neots, Cambridgeshire, England, when neighborhood officers spotted 20-year-old Fynley Jefferies sitting on a fence with a crossbody bag and a black plastic bag.

 

As officers approached to question him, Jefferies took off, diving into the bushes and the river. He stayed in the water for several minutes, attempting to secure his crossbody bag to some branches before emerging to face the officers. A post from social media below shows the alleged incident that took place:

The video shows officers greeting nearby picnickers before discovering Jefferies standing in thigh-deep water. “You’ve lost your bag as well, buddy,” one officer remarked, to which Jefferies resignedly replied, “I know.” Clearly out of breath, he lay flat on the grass with his head in his hands.

 

After removing his soaked hoodie, Jefferies was searched by the officers. A paddleboarder assisted in retrieving his bag, which contained $325 in cash, cocaine, ecstasy, and ketamine, totaling a street value of $2,000.

 

Jefferies, from Eynesbury, received his sentence of three years and eleven months in prison at Cambridge Crown Court on June 4. He had previously pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply cocaine, possession with intent to supply MDMA, possession of cannabis, harassment without violence, and malicious communication.
