A drug dealer in France can count himself unlucky after he threw his cannabis stash out of his flat, only for it to fall straight into the hands of police stationed outside.

Hearing the dreaded tread of security forces up his stairs, the man tried to get rid of the tell-tale evidence by hurling three bags of the drug off his balcony, without knowing other officers were posted outside.

He was arrested along with his girlfriend, who was also in the flat in Drancy near Paris.

Four kilogrammes of cannabis were recovered and more than €2,000 ($2,200) in cash.
