Texas Woman Hides Loaded Gun In Vagina (Plus, Some Other Ill-Advised Items Women Have Stashed In Their Kitties)

Vaginas are not meant to be storage units. They are not meant to be purses. They are not meant to be secret hiding places. You are not supposed to put unsterilized foreign objects in them. Most of us understand these rules. Ashley Cecilia Castaneda, 31, of Waco, Texas, apparently missed the memo. On Monday, she was arrested for possession of 29.5 grams of meth and a scale, both of which were found by authorities in her actual purse. But when Castaneda arrived at the station for booking, she revealed that she was still holding.


During Castaneda’s transport to the jail she told the officer that she had concealed a handgun inside her vagina. Officers immediately stopped and a female officer searched Castaneda discovering she had in fact placed a loaded Smith and Wesson pistol inside her body cavity. The weapon had a round chambered and a full magazine of bullets.

Well! Okay then! In addition to being charged with two counts of possession of a dangerous drug and one count of delivery of a controlled substance in a drug-free zone, Castaneda was also charged with unlawful carry for the gun tucked neatly in her box. I understand the desire to hide the weapon, but if you know you’re already in trouble for drugs, is avoiding an additional charge really worth shoving a loaded weapon in your vagina? Something to think about. [via Gawker]

Castaneda is not alone, though. Shit, she’s not even the first woman to hide a loaded gun in her vaginal canal. If you dare, click through to see the weirdest things women have stashed in their kitties, the poor things.
