Bungling drug dealers caught with 5kg of cocaine after undertaking police on motorway

Dashcam from the PC’s patrol car shows Simon Pagett undertaking on the M6 near junction 7 near Walsall, West Mids.

One of the gobsmacked officers is heard saying “Really?” before setting off in pursuit of the powerful BMW i8 on November 5 last year.Footage shows Pagett, alongside pal Dean Stone, pretending to pull over on seeing the blue lights before accelerating away at more than 100mph.

Pagett, 39, even did a lap of Toby Carvery car park in a desperate bid to escape before going off road where Stone jumped from the car and ran off clutching a rucksack.

Stone, 40, was arrested trying to get into a taxi nearby, while the rucksack was recovered in bushes.It was found to contain five 1kg slabs of high-purity cocaine with a value of around £500,000.

Five minutes later Pagett stopped the car and gave himself up to police.

He later claimed he earned £300,000 from dog breeding, cutting trees and running a vehicle recovery business.

Both men, of Walsall, admitted possessing drugs with intent to supply with Pagett also pleading guilty to dangerous driving.
