A man named Sy Allen was arrested in his blue Mercedes on suspicion that he was carrying illegal drugs inside his body. Upon arrest, he refused to pass out the alleged drugs inside his body via bowel movement, hence the police waited for 23 days, before mother nature finally took its natural course.

The 33-year-old man was arrested in the UK county of Essex on March 31. The man denied all the accusations and refused to eat anything for three days. He underwent a series of medical examinations, and later agreed to eat on the condition that only fresh food and snack will pass through his mouth.

Continuous medical monitoring were performed and doctors kept on visiting him for routine check-ups. Nonetheless, he insisted on refusing any medical interventions or treatment, and going to the toilet, the Mirror reported.

Allen eventually started feeling ill and was brought to the hospital on April 22. Finally, he was able to pass his bowel, and the doctors were able to collect 20 packs of cocaine and 24 packs of heroin from his body. The total cost of the drugs retrieved was approximately £1000.

The police charged Allen with possession with intent to supply drugs. He pleaded guilty at the Chelmsford Crown Court and was subsequently put behind bars for 32 months.
