OKLAHOMA - Two men in Bartlesville, Oklahoma found themselves behind bars after looking for a creative way to get rid of three eight balls of methamphetamine.
Police say it was one of the most unusual drug busts that they've ever had, it all started with a traffic violation, and what happened next, was all caught on camera.
Timothy Povlick was arrested for felony warrants, but quickly tried to get rid of a large amount of meth he had on him - by swallowing it.
After Povlick was put in the police car, Officer Cheyenne Lee then arrested the driver, Derek Boff, placing him in the back seat with Povlick. When Lee returned to search their car, the two guys began to talk. What they didn't realize is Bartlesville police have new dash cams that record audio.
According to the video, Boff tells Povlick he doesn't want him to die by eating all that meth, so the two decide to exchange the drugs and that's when the two kiss. After Lee brought them to the jail he went through the video.
Povlick later admitted he ate meth and had to go to the hospital, where doctors had to work quickly to save his life.
Bartlesville police say that without the dashcams these guys may have gotten away with a lesser charge.
