The shirtless male suspect could be seen tipping boxes of marijuana from a flat window above a shop in Birmingham on Monday morning (22 November), all while 2 police officers patiently watched on.
It clearly wasn't a typical day in the office for the police officers as the footage showed them collecting the large stash of 'evidence' that was very literally under their noses.
Astonishing mobile phone footage captured the growing mound of marijuana - part of a 20kg haul worth £6,000 - gathering on the street as well as the roof of the clothes shop.
The original video was obtained by Birmz Is Grime and has been viewed more than 50,000 times in under 24 hours since it was uploaded on social media.
As the unexpected weather forecast of marijuana rained down to the ground, a man recording the footage was heard saying: "This geezer has got ounces and he's throwing them out the window.
"How much has he got? What the f**k. That stinks that does, you know.
"Man's dropped a box out the window. This is what my morning has consisted of, watching some geezer's door get beat off.
"All of his weed is across the floor. He threw a box straight out of the window."
At one point, another man tells the suspect: "You're being filmed doing it, so this is pointless."
Commenting on the footage on Instagram, one woman said: "Doin illegal activities on top of a shop called swag is jus askin 4 trouble."
Another added: "Not really the best idea. He must have just panicked, those feds must not have believed what they were watching. didn't need to lift a finger."
A third person said: "That's pretty damning evidence right there landing right into their laps. What was he thinking?"
Addressing the incident, a West Midlands Police spokesman said: "A 34-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of possession with the intent to supply cannabis.
"His arrest follows the execution of an intelligence-led warrant at the address on Orphanage Road, Erdington this morning (22/11)."
"A crossbow and three imitation guns were found at the flat, along with approximately £6,000, 20kg of cannabis, 24 cannabis plants, a large volume of suspected cannabis oil and other items."
"The man remains in custody as our investigation develops."
"Anyone with information that may help should message us via Live Chat on our website west-midlands.police.uk."
