    Texas Woman Warns Police About Loaded Pistol in Her Vagina
    Waco Police Department, NBC 5 News
    L-R: Gabriel Garcia, Ashley Cecilia Castaneda and a .22 caliber Smith & Wesson pistol.

    A Texas traffic stop led police to a large drug stash and a fully loaded gun inside a woman's vagina, police say.

    Waco police officers pulled over a 1998 Land Rover near West Elementary School at about 11 p.m Monday.

    Police said they found 2.5 grams of methamphetamine under the vehicle's driver's seat.

    Officers arrested the driver, 30-year-old Gabriel Garcia, and charged him with possession of methamphetamine in a drug-free zone because the traffic stop was within 1,000 feet of the school.

    As police continued their search of the SUV, they found 29.5 grams of methamphetamine in the female passenger's purse, along with a set of digital weighing scales.

    That passenger, identified as Ashley Cecilia Castaneda, 31, was also arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine in a drug-free zone.

    During Castaneda's transport to the jail, she told the officer she had a concealed handgun inside her vagina. A female officer searched Castaneda and discovered a loaded .22 caliber semi-automatic Smith and Wesson pistol inside her vagina. The weapon had a round in the chamber and a full magazine.

    Attorney information for Castaneda and Garcia wasn't immediately available.
