BLOOMINGTON, IL — 20-year-old Amika Witt of Ozark, Missouri was found to have a loaded pistol inside her vaginal cavity after she was brought to the McLean County Jail for drug charges on Thursday.
Witt was caught driving down the highway at 90 miles per hour by Chenoa police. When pulled over, officers discovered she was concealing heroin in her bra. Police also found ecstasy on her person. Not surprisingly though, the handgun hidden in her vagina went undetected.
Her passenger, 29-year-old Clinton McDonald, was also arrested for felony drug charges. Witt and her accomplice admitted they were on their way to transport the drugs to St. Louis.
Strip searches are standard operating procedure for inmates charged with felony drug offenses at the jail, so when Witt was being examined, a female corrections officer found a loaded Kimber .380-caliber pistol inside her. According to authorities, the pistol was fully loaded and chambered.
In light of this new discovery, Witt was also charged with armed violence by possessing a weapon during the commission of felony drug violations.
Authorities say while this is an unusual incident, guns are occasionally snuck into the jail from time to time. Among other inmates, perhaps Witt ranks the highest for stashing creativity.
