Drug dealer caught after texting price list to police at festival

A Leeds Festival drug dealer was caught after accidentally texting his price list to a police officer.

Martynas Benosenko was found with more than £3,600 worth of cocaine, MDMA and cannabis on him after messaging an officer with an itemised rundown of what he was selling at the music event.

The 22-year-old former TGI Friday chef was also carrying business cards reading “Flavour Town LS6” – a reference to the area of Leeds where he lives.

He was jailed for three years four months at Leeds Crown Court after pleading guilty to two counts of possession and intent to supply a class A drug, Leeds Live reports.

“He decided to go sell drugs at Leeds Festival while completely high,” he said. “He thought it would be a good idea, not having a clue what he was getting himself into.“
