The waiting game…

A man suspected of hiding drugs up his bum during a police raid is spending his 11th day in the cells as police wait for any ‘movement’.

In what is believed to be a first for Dyfed-Powys Police, officers have used a S152 Criminal Justice Act to detain persons suspected of concealing drugs, and will be back in court tomorrow to ask for a further eight days if there is no change.

The man was one of three arrested on May 1, and he has been charged with an offence of possession with intent to supply. But the waiting game for evidence is taking its time.

A quantity of drugs was recovered following address searches, and the other two men have since been released under investigation. 

“The detainee remains in custody,” said PS Tom Marshall. “He is under constant watch and will remain with us until any drugs have been passed.”

PS Marshall confirmed that there had been no drugs swallowed during the raid by the suspect, and (thankfully) didn’t reveal why they believed the drugs had been hidden up his bottom.
