Dealer finally gave up after 16 days
A drug 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 today.
Damien Ankrah, aged 28, was arrested on July 13th on suspicion of transporting heroin by placing the drugs in condoms and placing them inside himself.
Police became even more suspicious when he refused food or drink in his cell at Pembroke Dock police station, west Wales.
An officer was stationed full time outside his cell door and police used special legislation to keep him in custody beyond the normal time limits.
Ankrah began to accept drinks only but after local magistrates granted a further extension of time for his detention on July 17th he started to eat small quantities of food.
But he kept his legs crossed until July 29th, when he finally came clean and produced five bags of heroin.

Panty raid at Victoria's Secret Store
$8,000 in undies stolen from Victoria's Secret
Five hundred pairs of panties were reported stolen Thursday from the Victoria's Secret store in the Bell Tower Shops.
Employee Michelle Birch told deputies that at 5:30 p.m. two women came into the store with a child.
According to reports, the child went into the beauty section and opened several drawers, possibly to distract Birch while the mother continued to shop.
During that time, a man and woman also came into the store, and employee Tonia Wiesner helped them.
Wiesner told police the man stood uncomfortably close to her face and asked several questions in Spanish.
Birch noticed the two women had left the store, and then discovered 500 pairs of panties, each valued at $16.00, were missing from trays.

Helen Smith was 23 when she fell from the balcony of a block of flats in the city of Jeddah in May, 1979.
Her father Ron, who is 83 and now in poor health, has finally given the go-ahead for her to be cremated after three decades of campaigning for a public inquiry into the circumstances surrounding her death.
Helen and fellow partygoer Johannes Otten - a Dutch sea captain - were both killed in the fall and police concluded they had been having sex when they lost their footing.
Mr. Smith, a retired police officer, always denied this and refused to accept the open verdict at her inquest.
