Drugs man's 16 day toilet refusal

    Drugs man's 16 day toilet refusal
    A drugs dealer who refused to go to the toilet for 16 days to avoid producing the evidence that would convict him has been jailed for 52 months.

    Damien Ankrah, 28, placed the drugs in condoms and swallowed them to avoid detection, Swansea Crown Court heard.

    The judge heard that after police in Pembrokeshire arrested him during a drugs operation, he refused to eat for days to avoid going to the toilet.
    Ankrah, from Liverpool, admitted possessing heroin.

    David Lindsay, prosecuting, told the court - sitting at Swansea Guildhall - that Ankrah's stubbornness took up an "inordinate" amount of police time and resources.

    Ankrah was arrested in Haverfordwest on 13 July as part of a police operation uncovering new drugs suppliers coming into Pembrokeshire.
    Food refusal

    He was taken to Pembroke Dock police station, where he refused food or drink in his cell.

    An officer was stationed full time outside his cell door and powers used to extend his detention.

    Ankrah eventually began to accept drinks after local magistrates granted police more time to detain him and on 17 July he started to eat again.

    On 29 July he went to the toilet and produced five bags of heroin.

    The court heard that when Ankrah was arrested he told officers he did not have any drugs on him and said he would co-operate with a strip search.

    No drugs were found, even following an examination by a police surgeon.
    But Ankrah's mobile telephone revealed text messages showing he was clearly involved in supplying heroin.

    Jim Davis, defending, said his client "was a man of some strength and determination", as his refusal to go to the toilet illustrated.

    He added that both Ankrah's grandmother and mother had been heroin addicts.

    Judge Peter Heywood said Ankrah's willingness to put his life at risk showed his determination to keep the heroin concealed.
    "It was rather misguided and it could have been fatal," he said.

    "Had these packages burst he would have found himself at death's door."
    Ankrah admitted possessing heroin, with a street value of £3,200, with intent to supply.

    It was his third offence for drug trafficking.

    Clear message
    Following the case, Det Sgt Richard Lewis of Dyfed Powys Police said: "Drug dealers often go to extreme lengths to hide their drugs from police, even placing them inside their bodies.

    "However Dyfed Powys Police are warning that even this doesn't mean their drugs will not be discovered.

    "Police have lawful powers which enable them to detain a person in custody who is suspected of secreting drugs within their body for as long as is absolutely necessary.

    "This legislation has proved invaluable. It sends a clear message to drug dealers that there really is no place to hide."

    Dug from the bowels (pun intended) of the internet:

    Even Bush's crap is classified top secret. According to our Austrian sources, Austrian newspapers are currently abuzz with special security details of George W. Bush's recent trip to Vienna. Although the heavy-handed Gestapo-like security measures meted out to Viennese home owners, business proprietors, and pedestrians by US Secret Service agents and local police before and during Bush's visit received widespread Austrian media attention, it was White House "toilet security" ("TOILSEC"), which has Austrians talking the most.

    The White House flew in a special portable toilet to Vienna for Bush's personal use during his visit. The Bush White House is so concerned about Bush's security, the veil of secrecy extends over the president's bodily excretions. The special port-a-john captured Bush's feces and urine and flew the waste material back to the United States in the event some enterprising foreign intelligence agency conducted a sewage pipe operation designed to trap and examine Bush's waste material. One can only wonder why the White House is taking such extraordinary security measures for the presidential poop.

    In the past, similar operations were conducted against foreign leaders to determine their medical condition. However, these intelligence operations were directed against dictators in countries where even the medical conditions of the top political leaders were considered "state secrets."

    The Israeli Mossad conducted one such operation against Syrian President Hafez Assad when he visited Amman, Jordan in Feb. 1999 for the funeral of King Hussein. The Mossad and its Jordanian counterpart installed a special toilet in Assad's hotel room that led not to a pipe but to a specimen canister. Assad suffered from diabetes and cancer and the operation was designed to discover the actual medical condition of the ailing leader.

    During Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev's visit to Washington in 1987, the CIA reportedly placed a special trap under a sewage tank to collect the Soviet leader's bodily waste for analysis.

    More recently, the CIA was reported to have collected waste samples from Ugandan President-dictator Yoweri Museveni's toilet when he visited Washington.

    Even Bush's toilet paper was flown in from the U.S. Air Base at Ramstein, Germany. In addition, Bush's food was flown in from the United States and tested with special chemicals before he ate it. Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu, who was shot by a firing squad in 1989, was the last major European leader to constantly use a food tester. The last frequent state visitor to Vienna, who always relied on a food tester, was Adolf Hitler.
