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.
Andrew Shaw, for Miller, said he was dealing in drugs to pay back a drugs debt.

He said Miller had been involved in low level dealing and said that £600 of the cash seized had been money from a sale of a car.
He said: 'He knows it is going to be a custodial sentence.'
