WACO, Texas - Officers searching a woman after a traffic stop found a fully loaded pistol in her vagina, Waco police said.
Just before 11 p.m. CT Monday, officers stopped a 1998 Toyota Land Cruiser at 15th and Blair in north Waco for a traffic violation. During the stop, officers said the driver of the vehicle, Gabriel Garcia, 30, had 2.7 grams of methamphetamine under the driver's seat.
A further search of the car allegedly uncovered another 29.5 grams of meth and scales in the purse of the female passenger, Ashley Cecilia Castaneda, 31.
Because the traffic stop occurred within 1,000 feet of an elementary school, both Garcia and Castaneda were arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine in a drug-free zone, Waco police Sgt. Patrick Swanton said.
While Castaneda was being transported to jail, she told an officer she had concealed a handgun in her vagina. Officers immediately stopped and a female officer searched the suspect, finding a loaded Smith and Wesson .22-caliber pistol with a round chambered in her vagina.
The weapon was taken into evidence and Castaneda was also charged with unlawfully carrying a weapon.
