Wow. As places to conceal unlawful weaponry go, this is not only extremely dangerous - but just slightly uncomfortable. 

According to Gawker, the woman in question was a suspected drug dealer: "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."

KCEN-TV reports: "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."

If you're wondering why this made it on to the news, here's why: "People have asked us, ‘Why are you even telling us this?’ The reason is because we want people to know this truly does happen. That was an extremely dangerous situation for everyone involved.”
