Florence, AZ (The Weekly Vice) - Desiree Romero, a 28-year-old Arizona woman, was jailed Thursday after she was allegedly caught eating drugs from her vagina while she was being incarcerated on drug charges.
According to the Pinal County Sheriff's Office, Romero and 26-year-old Thomas Duke were traveling on Interstate 10 Thursday evening when a deputy stopped a minivan they were traveling in for a traffic violation.
The officer noted a large sign covering the van's back window as he pulled in behind it, which prompted a search of the vehicle. Officers recovered 14 large bundles of marijuana from the van at an estimated street value of $272,000.
During the search, officers also recovered a vial of meth from Romero's purse. Romero denied having any other drugs located on her person as deputies arrested her and transported her to jail.
During the booking process, Romero was asked to submit to a second search. That's when she allegedly retrieved about a gram of marijuana and meth from her vagina and attempted to swallow them.
Detention officers were able to grab the drugs out of Romero's mouth before they were ingested.
Romero and Duke were booked into the Pinal County Detention Center and charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell, transportation of marijuana and marijuana possession.
Romero was also charged with possession of a dangerous drug, possession of drug paraphernalia and promoting prison contraband.
Duke is currently on parole for forgery and identity theft.
