31-year-old Ashley Cecilia Castaneda was arrested during a traffic stop in Waco, Texas on Monday after authorities say they found 29.5 grams of meth and a scale in her purse. According to police, however, Castaneda soon revealed she was still holding. From KCEN-TV:
During Castaneda’s transport to the jail she told the officer that she had concealed a handgun inside her vagina. Officers immediately stopped and a female officer searched Castaneda discovering she had in fact placed a loaded Smith and Wesson pistol inside her body cavity. The weapon had a round chambered and a full magazine of bullets.
“People have asked us, ‘Why are you even telling us this?’” a police spokesperson told the Waco Tribune-Herald. “The reason is because we want people to know this truly does happen. That was an extremely dangerous situation for everyone involved.”
