Waco, Texas (Mckoy’s News) – This Pistol Packing Mama Hid a Gun, Loaded: From IDs to drugs, and even weapons, the imaginative list of items that female offenders have smuggled up in their private parts is seemingly endless.
The latest report comes out of Texas, where a woman who police say packed a loaded Smith & Wesson semi-automatic pistol in her vagina has been sentenced to probation.
Ashley Cecilia Castaneda, 33, pleaded guilty to drug possession. She was sentenced to 10 years of deferred probation for methamphetamine possession, and fined $2,500.
When Castaneda and Gabriel Garcia, 30, were arrested in 2015, police allegedly found 2.7 grams of methamphetamine hidden under the driver’s seat of the vehicle and another 29.9 grams of meth in a purse.
While en route to McLennan County Jail, Castaneda told officers that she was packing a loaded handgun in her private parts.
Police Sergeant W. Patrick Swanton said a jail matron performed a cavity search and indeed found the gun in the spot where the suspect said it had been hidden. Police say the weapon had a round chambered and a full magazine of bullets.
Castaneda’s attorney, Seth Sutton, denied the story, and said that it would be impossible.
Swanton said the police department stood by their account of the events following the arrest.
