Illinois (USA): A Missouri woman named Anika Watt was found with a loaded handgun hidden in her vagina during a traffic stop.
She pleaded guilty on Friday (04 May) to weapons possession and drugs charges.
She was stopped on the highway, where heroin and ecstasy were found in her car.
Anika, 27, pleaded guilty to two felony charges as part of a reduced sentence agreement that also requires her to testify against an acquaintance, reported the smoking gun.
She put the gun inside her vagina in a desperate attempt to hide it from police, but the loaded Kimber .380 calibre handgun was discovered during a cavity search.
Witt pleaded guilty to possession of a weapon by a felon and unlawful possession of a controlled substance at the Circuit Court in McLean County, Illinois, and faces up to 10 years in prison on the gun charge and 15 years in custody on heroin possession. However, this could be greatly reduced after she signed a plea deal.
She was stopped whilst travelling in her car with 29-year-old Clinton McDonald on Interstate 55 just north of Bloomington, Indiana when she was stopped by the cops.
Upon searching the car they found a significant amount of drugs and arrested her. Her Kimber .380 calibre handgun is about 5.6 inches long and when it's not loaded it weights 13.4 ounces. Not an inconsiderable thing to have stashed away inside you.
Strangely enough, this sort of thing happens more often than you might think.
The police officer who searched her, Kathy Unbewust said at the time: "I observed at that time a wooden and metal item sticking out from her vagina area."
She then "pulled the item from her vagina, and found it to be a 5 shot revolver with rounds in the chamber."
