Police in Coventry arrested a drug dealer after he was spotted riding around on a distinctive pink bike, which they had suspected was stolen.
As the police approached Corey McAleaney in Henley Green, he attempted to ride away from them. However, the 20-year-old was caught and 'brought to the ground'.
A search revealed that he was carrying a significant quantity of cannabis and cash, according to the Coventry Telegraph.
McAleaney subsequently pleaded guilty to possession and the intent to supply drugs at Warwick Crown Court, and was handed a suspended 10-month prison sentence.
McAleaney will now move in with his parents under 'strict conditions'. They will supervise his conduct and report him to a probation officer should he lapse back into drug dealing.
