A Maryland woman being processed at jail after her arrest was charged again when a body scanner detected heroin in her vagina.
Brittany Ann Sapp, 23, was arrested Saturday after a deputy in Frederick County, Maryland, pulled her over for a traffic violation, according to the Associated Press.
During the stop, a K-9 unit sniffed out the presence of narcotics in the car. A search discovered a substance suspected to be heroin, which led to Sapp's arrest, according to WUSA9.com.
Sapp was taken to central booking at the Frederick County Adult Detention Center for processing. While she was there,
authorities used a body scanner on her that detected a baggie in her vagina. It contained another 1.7 grams of heroin, WBALTV.com reports.
She was transferred to a local hospital a short time later after she showed symptoms suggesting that she ingested at least some heroin, MyFoxDC reports.
Sapp has been charged with possession of heroin and possession of contraband in a place of confinement, CorrectionsOne.com reports.
She was released Saturday after posting $25,000 bail, and is due in court June 30.
