NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Police said an accused drug dealer accidentally dropped some illegal narcotics while at a convenience store this weekend.

The suspect, Miguel Bodre, reached into his pockets to check out at an Exxon on Old Hickory Boulevard and Nolensville Pike.

However, Bodre accidentally dropped a bag of cocaine on the floor, said police. There just happened to be a police officer standing near him at the time.

Police said the large bag of cocaine that fell from his pocket was divided into smaller baggies for resale.

Bodre is charged with felony drug possession.
