When Things Go Wrong
Amanda Colmenero (pictured), 22, arrested on September 20, 2011, in Coos Bay, Oregon, thought she would outwit police by hiding two containers full of methamphetamine in her vagina before she was arrested and hauled off the jail on drug charges. Colmenero, who was held overnight at the jail, was found unconscious and not breathing by a guard in the morning and was taken to the hospital, where medical staff removed the two containers and determined that they had broken inside her, causing an overdose. Officials speculate that the usual jail body cavity search did not turn up the meth, because the containers were so far up inside her.
