A detainee in the Lai Chi Kok Reception Centre is under investigation after he excreted a pack of suspected heroin yesterday, the Correctional Services Department says. The man, surnamed Ng, 39, was admitted to the centre on February 12 on a charge of trafficking in a dangerous drug. The next day he tried to run away from a prison worker during a body search and was found to have dumped a packet of drugs.
