A woman from Indiana was detained for allegedly fabricating a heart attack and concealing an “avocado-size plastic sandwich bag” with illegal substances in her intimate areas.
The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office said that on Monday, September 4, deputies Ryan Riggs, Aaron Crawford, and Matt Wright stopped Amanda Smith, age 41.
According to the police, while conducting their investigation, the officers noticed signs of drug use, and K9 Copper inspected the car and alerted the investigators to the presence of illegal drugs.
When Richmond EMS attempted to conduct electronic testing or assess Smith’s condition, Smith immediately pretended to have a heart attack, according to court documents seen by FOX 59 Indianapolis.
Smith refused to take her clothes off or receive medical attention after being taken to a nearby hospital by authorities.
FOX 59 said that authorities felt Smith was trying to hide drugs from them while looking for a means to get rid of the evidence after the suspect insisted on going to the toilet alone.
The 41-year-old suspect allegedly admitted to police that she had some fentanyl stashed in her undergarments. According to documents, nurses allegedly found a plastic sandwich bag tucked down inside the woman’s privates.
A body check conducted by Wayne County Jail revealed a “abnormality in her pelvic area,” according to a court document.
Smith maintained her denial of any secrets.
In the end, Smith reportedly acknowledged to hiding drugs in her pants and produced a “avocado-size plastic sandwich bag,” according to the records.
Police identified 38.9 grammes of methamphetamine, 10.4 grammes of crack cocaine, and 9.2 grammes of fentanyl after examining the illegal substances. According to court filings, a check of Smith’s car turned up even more illegal substances, including buprenorphine, naloxone, and gabapentin. Police claimed that a notepad they discovered in her car also had names, weights, money amounts, and the types of drugs.
Smith was taken into custody and charged with selling methamphetamine, a Level 2 felony; selling narcotics; selling cocaine; and selling controlled substances, a Level 6 crime.
