Don't smoke and snapchat - Channel 10's Gold Coast Cops / news.com.au
The selfie/snapchat generation, seems to be getting dumber and dumber right before our eyes.
It wasn't like drug dealers were the smartest bunch anyway but having an ego and an iPhone is a recipe for trouble.
In a recent news.com.au article, a Gold Coast (of course!) alleged drug dealer was confronted by police from the Rapid Action Patrol (RAP haha) task force after receiving a tip-off.
Luckily, cameras were also there as a part of Channel 10's classy cop doco series Gold Coast Cops when cops happened upon an incriminating video where he is seen 'taking a selfie video while rubbing his belly / playing with a big bag of marijuana.

Supposedly after seeing the video the officers were unable to control their laughter of the situation telling news.com.au that he was trying to be "some sort of gangster".

"It just goes to show that there’s no end to how dumb some of these criminals can really be. It’s mind-blowing."
"It could only happen on the Gold Coast, " commented RAP Superintendent Jim Keogh on news.com.au
What an absolute knob.
