From: Ananova, UK - Dec 11, 2003

Police in Germany who arrested a 'deaf' suspect in a drugs raid found he had hidden wraps of heroin in his ears.

The 33-year-old man was arrested in Kassel after an anonymous tip-off that he was selling drugs.

A police spokesman said: "He seemed nervous when he was being questioned so the officers decided to bring him in for questioning.

"But by the time they reached the police station, he had become deaf."

A police doctor examined him and found wraps of heroin were obstructing his hearing. The man will be charged with drug offences
