A drug dealer was caught after telling cops they “coulda used a better picture” on his wanted poster.

Detective Constable Freya Smith said: “Bennetts showed his contempt for police with his taunts on social media while on the run.

“He may have thought himself a joker but in reality Bennetts was bringing misery to communities with his drug dealing."

Police put out an appeal for the arrest of Bennetts, of Gloucester, last May after he breached a court order.

He was caught a few weeks later when police spotted him in Gloucestershire.

At Gloucester Crown Court Bennetts admitted supplying cocaine and cannabis and was jailed for two years.

Bennetts was sentenced to two years for the supply of cocaine and 12 months for the supply of cannabis, to run concurrently.
