(CS) A drug dealer caught red-handed by police near the capital's central train station, tried to hide drugs by swallowing them just before being apprehended.

In a statement issued by customs officials on Tuesday, they reported that 1,800 euros in cash, two mobile phones, 36.4 grammes of marijuana and 9.1 grammes of cocaine were confiscated from the man when he was arrested last week.

The dealer was taken to hospital as police feared he might have swallowed some of the drugs to hide them. The suspicion was confirmed, although customs did not specify what the dealer had swallowed.

The prosecution ordered the man's arrest and he was presented to a judge.
