A suspected drug dealer was charged with unlawfully carrying a weapon this week after police allegedly found a fully-loaded .22 caliber handgun in her vagina, USA Today reports.

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.”

In addition to unlawful carry, Castaneda has been charged with two counts of possession of a dangerous drug and one count of delivery of a controlled substance in a drug-free zone, KWTX reports.
