Jason Christopher Hennon, 45 of Lindale, was arrested this week after reports said he swallowed a bag of methamphetamine so that police could not confiscate it.

Police said that they approached Hennon as he was found trespassing at a home on Malone Drive.   Hennon then placed the sack of meth in his mouth and swallowed it.

He was then taken to a local hospital to be monitored for his health.

Hennon is charged with tampering with evidence and criminal trespass.
