When I read about a woman packing heat in her vagina in the New York Metro this morning, I thought it was an isolated incident. Apparently I was wrong. I was so intrigued with the idea of “packing heat” in one’s nether regions, that I did a google search.
The most recent incident occurred in Waco, Texas on Tuesday, September 8. Ashley Castaneda, 31, was concealing a fully loaded, Smith and Wesson Escort in her lady parts; she was also charged with methamphetamine possession. The drugs were discovered first after she and her male companion were pulled off for a traffic violation. Apparently, she confessed to handgun possession on the way to jail for fear that it would go off.

19-year-old Dallas Archer of Tennessee hid a four-inch, five-shot mini revolver in her vagina. She was arrested for driving without a license, and the gun was discovered during a routine pat-down by a female police officer.
Christie Harris of Ada, Oklahoma was sentenced to 25 years for concealing a loaded .22 caliber revolver in her vag and two clear baggies of meth in her anus.
This one makes me sad. Jennifer McCarthy, ex-wife of author Cormac McCarthy, was engaged in a heated argument with her boyfriend. She went into the couple’s bedroom and re-surfaced clad in white lingerie and a silver handgun. He says she started to have sex with the gun, then withdrew it and pointed it at his head. After a struggle, the boyfriend gained possession of the gun, which he then threw in the trash before notifying the police.

28-year-old Gloria Perez and 24-year-old Kelly Nicole Olson of southwest Florida were engaged in a fight and were questioned by Deputy John Poole. Poole radioed for assistance, and during a pat-down, the female deputy recognized Olson as Whitney Noelle Krimmel, with whom she had had previous contact. Krimmel was found with 25 different prescription drugs in her possession. Perez said she was feeling ill, so an ambulance was called. During the examination, medical personnel discovered two knives–one in her vagina, and another in a roll of fat in her stomach. A bottle of pills was also concealed in body fat.
I admit to being in awe of these women for sheer chutzpah. Yes, hiding loaded weapons in delicate body parts is not only dangerous and cold, but stupid (what if they went off?), but you have to admire the guts (and desperation) it took to put them there in the first place.
