Huntsville, TN (The Weekly Vice) - Brita West, a Huntsville Tennessee woman, was jailed Sunday after she allegedly tried to pass drugs to her inmate boyfriend by hiding them inside her dentures.
According to the Scott County Sheriff's Office, West was preparing to get married to her inmate boyfriend at the Huntsville Detention Center Sunday when her status changed from "bride" to "inmate" within a matter of minutes.
Investigators say West was being searched in preparation for the jailhouse wedding when a deputy noticed that her dentures kept falling out of place.
Upon closer inspection, deputies saw a package inside her mouth that she attempted to hide between her dentures and gum.
The package was searched and was later determined to contain methamphetamine and suboxone strips.
During a search of West's purse and car, deputies uncovered more meth, several syringes, and a crushed pill.
West was booked into the same jail and charged with possession of meth, possession of schedule 3 narcotics and introducing drugs into a detention facility. She remains held in lieu of $25,000 bond.
