Baltimore cops filmed 'placing drugs in car before search'

New video allegedly showing Baltimore police officers planting evidence has emerged just days after it was revealed that footage of similar actions had led to the dismissal of dozens of drugs cases in the city.

The footage is claimed to show several officers in the Maryland city collaborating to place drugs in a car which were later found during a search that led to an arrest.

The events, which have led to charges being dropped in at least one case, were captured by multiple police body cameras while officers were seemingly unaware that their actions were being recorded, the public defender's office said.
