In 2013, during a drug arrest, a woman from Oklahoma was discovered with a loaded handgun inserted inside her vagina, and bags of meth in her butt.
Three months later, Christie Dawn Harris, pleaded no contest to three felony counts of possession of meth with intent to distribute, gun possession, and bringing contraband into the prison.
According to a report from The Smoking Gun, Judge Steven Kessinger sentenced Harris to 25 years on each count, with the three prison terms to run concurrently. Harris also has to pay $1,363 in court costs and fees.
Harris’ legal troubles started just before 4 am on March 4, when police authorities spotted her and another woman inside a Toyota Yaris parked in the 100 blocks of North Bluff in Ada, Oklahoma.
Harris was taken into custody after the police searched her vehicle and discovered meth, drug paraphernalia, a Raven Arms .25 caliber semi-automatic pistol, and a magazine.
As Harris was taken to jail, she complained and told officers that she needed to go to the bathroom. When authorities told her that she had to change into ‘jail clothing’ and submit to a cavity search, she took off her shirt, pants, and socks, but refused to remove her underwear, saying she was on her period.
Harris eventually agreed to submit to a body cavity search, at which point Officer Kathy Unbewust said she ‘observed at that time a wooden and metal item sticking out from her vagina area.’
The item turned out to be a loaded Freedom Arms .22-caliber handgun, with three live bullets and one spent shell.
According to Pontotoc County District Attorney Chris Ross, ‘as [Harris] turned around, [the officer] noticed more plastic baggies, larger plastic baggies wedged in the crack of her buttocks.’
The bags were found to contain methamphetamines.
Harris and an accomplice were booked on various drugs and weapons charges, both have extensive criminal records.
