A gangster has gone three weeks without a bowel movement in an alleged attempt to stop police finding drugs he swallowed.
The man was arrested in Harlow, Essex, on January 17, and is charged with two counts of possessing Class A drugs with intent to supply. He is accused of swallowing a drugs stash, and is being kept in custody.
Officers have been tweeting updates of what they have described as "poo watch".
Police said they would continue to apply to court for custody extensions until the man goes for a poo.
The unit said that Wednesday was day 21 "for our man on #poowatch", adding: "Still no movements/items to report, he will remain with us until Friday when we are back at court where we will be requesting a further eight days should he not produce anything before that hearing."
Personal overshare here: when I had shingles, I didn't do a poo for over a week until I had to take a laxative, which did the trick. So what's stopping the authorities doing that to their prisoner? It's not as if he's hiding anything by now.
I'm wondering if he's trying some sort of scam - if there is medical intervention, he sues the authorities for violating his human rights. If there is no intervention and he suffers medical problems, he sues the authorities because they didn't intervene.

Local small time crooks with low cunning stole a JCB and broke into thr LID, they were after the safe. They then hung around trying unsuccessfully to open said safe and were arrested. It looks as if some others took advantage of the situation to grab some more accessible goodies.
It was overhyped with even pics and a vid of another LIDL store from 2016 actually onfire!
