A Great Yarmouth drug dealer fled from police after he was spotted dumping a package containing cocaine and £980 in cash in a bush, a court heard.
Keith Miller, 36, was later arrested after his fingerprints were found on the packaging of the drugs, Norwich Crown Court heard.
John Farmer, prosecuting, said that the cocaine had a street value of about £180 to £225.
Miller, of Sandown Road, Great Yarmouth, admitted possession of cocaine with intent to supply and was jailed for three and half years.
The court heard Miller had previous convictions for drugs offences and had been jailed in 2008 for seven years for conspiracy to supply cocaine.
