Cavity Search Finds Loaded Gun In Woman’s Body Say Police

WACO, Texas (AP) – Police in Texas say they removed a loaded handgun from a woman’s body during a cavity search.

Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton tells the Waco Tribune-Herald officers stopped an SUV for a traffic violation late Monday and found methamphetamine inside. A man and woman were arrested.

Swanton says while 31-year-old Ashley Cecilia Castaneda was being taken to the McLennan County Jail, she told an officer she had a loaded .22-caliber semiautomatic handgun inside her vagina.

Swanton says officers called for a female officer, who retrieved the gun. Swanton confirmed the weapon was loaded.

Castaneda is charged with possession of methamphetamine and unlawfully carrying a weapon.

Thirty-year-old Gabriel Garcia faces the same drug charge.

Both are in custody in lieu of bond. It wasn’t immediately clear if they had attorneys who could comment on their behalf.
