A drug addict reportedly consumed a wrap of heroin from a police interview table in a desperate bid to destroy police evidence.

38 year old Alan Timperley, was being quizzed by the Lancashire Police officers when they found the Class A drug concealed on his person.

An officer placed the drugs on the table during his subsequent interrogation – but Timperley reportedly snatched the stash and swallowed it.

According to Mirror UK, the Court heard that the serial criminal, who has 35 convictions for 66 offences, opted to dispose of the drugs because the officer was ‘doing his head in’.

Timperley, of Accrington, Lancs, was jailed for four months after pleading guilty to perverting the course of justice as well as earlier burglary and theft offences.
