A drug dealer who showed cops his stash after they knocked on his door to “save them the bother” of looking has been jailed.
Jamie Canter was caught with Class A drugs worth nearly £39,000.
Canter told police he had to “make a job for himself” as he was unable to find work.
The 20-year-old, of Adamson Court, was yesterday jailed by Sheriff Tom Hughes for more than two years after previously being remanded for supplying cocaine and MDMA (ecstasy).
Fiscal depute David Bernard previously told Dundee Sheriff Court police raided Canter’s home at the Kirk Street multi on April 19 last year.
Canter immediately co-operated, volunteering to show officers where the drugs were, pointing at a cupboard in the living room.
Canter then said: “It’ll be quicker if I show you where everything is. I’ll show you round.”
Various bags of powder and tablets were found throughout the property, in the living room, bedroom and kitchen.
In total, police seized 18.12g of cocaine worth £1,800, a further 598.89g of benzocaine with a value of £29,000 if mixed with cocaine, one ecstasy tablet and 246.29g of MDMA worth £7,920.
A set of scales with traces of drugs and a card containing trace amounts of drugs were also found.
Canter told officers: “There are ecstasy tablets under the cushion. You might find a couple of grams lying around.”
He was searched and found to be in possession of £120 in cash.
A safe was also found in the bedroom which was lying open.
A mobile phone was also seized containing drug-related messages, leading to a witness being identified who told police she had bought drugs from Canter last year.
Canter admitted two charges of being concerned in the supply of cocaine and MDMA, both Class A drugs, at Adamson Court.
Solicitor Douglas McConnell said Canter’s personal life had improved after he was remanded and he was fully aware he would be facing a custodial sentence.
Sheriff Hughes, who praised Canter for co-operating with the police, sentenced him to two years and four months in prison.
