Gwiasdowski tried to run away but officers detained him.

A drug dealer who was caught urinating in the street has been jailed.

Michael Gwiasdowski, 28, was stopped by officers in Dramsell Rise, St Neots, at just before 9pm on December 7 2018 when he was caught urinating on the path, next to his black Volkswagen Golf.

When officers asked what he was doing, he responded with slurred words and tried to run away.

Gwiasdowski was immediately detained and a search of his car uncovered bags of white powder, that were later identified as ketamine and cocaine, worth a street value of £780.
