A flash drug dealer accused of running a £200,000 pill-making factory claims he received this money from playing professional poker.

29-year-old Jamie Woods insisted to a judge that all his money was amassed through playing poker.  Woods was snared at the home of Paolo Nutini impersonator Jamie McArthur last March.

Police seized a huge haul of psychoactive substance Etizolam from the property in Howwood, Renfrewshire.  Woods DNA was found on items linked to the crime.

Further more, the judge was unimpressed after learning that Woods owned a £30,000 Mercedes, a £10,000 Rolex Submariner watch and had almost £800 in cash at the time of his arrest.

Woods has been filmed participating in various poker circuit tours.
