Hole-Y Trinity! Old Meth-in-the-Vadge Trick Fails for Third Time This Year in East Texas Town
Karen Hale: Not as creative or sanitary as her predecessors.
For the third time this year, police in Trinity, Texas, have busted a woman who tried to hide some crystal meth inside her vagina.
We have to say that Karen Hale, the 22-year-old suspect in this case, failed to show the creativity or sanitation of her predecessors. Those women allegedly tucked their stashes away in a magnetic key hider and a metal key ring canister. Hale apparently was content to hide her meth away in a standard plastic drug baggie.
On May 9, acting on a tip about alleged drug activity, Trinity Police Chief Steven Jones pulled over and detained Hale and 30-year-old Charles Alexander and found them in possession of needles, spoons and possibly other drug paraphernalia.
Officer Donald Givens and Hale's former landlady celebrate the return of her window units.
According to KTRE, as the trio was on their way to jail, Jones told them that they would be probed more extensively during the booking process. That was when Hale decided to surrender her intimate secret. (Jones told KTRE that Hale can be seen on an arrest video taking the meth from her bra and slipping it what some people call her "prison wallet.")
Hale was further charged with felony delivery of a controlled substance, but it could have been worse for her: Had the drugs been found after she had been booked, she would have faced another felony, that of bringing drugs into a jail.
Meanwhile, police also found two window a/c units of allegedly dubious provenance in the trunk of the car Hale and Alexander were driving. On May 11, officer Donald Givens returned them to Hale's former landlady, who did not yet know that Hale had removed them from the home she had rented her. Theft charges are reportedly pending.
