A MAN is thought to have swallowed heroin after police stopped a car he was in.
The 31-year-old, from Batley, was with two Gomersal men, aged 31 and 38, in a car which was stopped in Gomersal last Tuesday.
He was taken to a special drug toilet area in Leeds and had to stay there until a sample was obtained. It has now been sent for analysis.
When police stopped the men they recovered a quantity of what they believe may be heroin, along with money.
All three have been released on police bail, pending enquiries.
Police have stressed that people cannot evade arrest by swallowing drugs, which is a very dangerous thing to do.
Acting Det Insp Mick Turner, of Kirklees District Drugs Team, said: "This is just another example of the lengths we will go to take suspected dealers off your streets.
"Drug dealers are changing tactics all the time and through the support of the public who call Dob in a Dealer we can stay one step ahead."
Anyone with information about suspected dealers can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
