Police seized an axe, knife, cash and cannabis from a dealer's home after he was caught selling drugs right in front of them.

The arrest fell into the lap of officers from Waddon MPS, who were surprised to see a transaction unfolding before their eyes.

Having cuffed the careless criminal for supplying class B drugs, they searched his house where they found a range of illegal items.

Posting about the incident on twitter, officers joked that the suspect was "very thoughtful."
