A man has been arrested after allegedly trying to drugs to sell three off duty police officers in an affluent south-west London town centre.
It is claimed he was dealing drugs in front of the officers and approached them outside McDonald's in the Quadrant, Richmond, on Monday.
A man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply following the “awkward” encounter at about 11.40pm.
Richmond Police later posted a picture online of what is believed to be cannabis, two wraps of cocaine and a number of Xanax pills.
On Twitter, an officer wrote: “That awkward moment you try to sell drugs to three off duty #Police officers in #Richmond then drug deal in front of them.. male arrested.”
A Richmond Police spokeswoman said: “At this time the investigation is ongoing and enquiries continue.”
