Maryland cases dropped after cop filmed 'planting drugs'

Dozens of drugs and firearms cases have been dismissed in Baltimore, Maryland, after police officers were caught on camera appearing to be planting evidence.

A police officer was recorded on his own body camera confiscating what is alleged to be heroin which he then places in a tin can at an undisclosed location in January this year.

As a result of the footage, 34 cases have been dismissed and 100 are under review, Baltimore's top prosecutor says.
