A Kentucky woman who had been arrested for public intoxication allegedly managed to remove drugs hidden in her vagina and snort them—all while handcuffed in the backseat of a police cruiser.
Police came across 28-year-old Kathryn Ahlers and her boyfriend about 20 miles outside of Lexington, according to the New York Daily News. The couple claimed they were lost and on their way to Cincinnati, Ohio.
According to an arrest report obtained by The Smoking Gun, officers suspected Ahlers and her boyfriend were “intoxicated and about to operate a vehicle.” They noted Ahlers demonstrated “slurred speech,” was “unsteady” and was a “danger to herself and others” at the time of her arrest. A short time later, police say Ahlers, whose hands were cuffed behind her back in a police car, extracted a clear plastic bag containing white powder from her crotch area, somehow dumped it on the backseat of the police car, and sniffed it. The police report lists the substance as “cocaine other.”
“While in the backseat of my cruiser Ahlers pulled a clear plastic baggie from her vagina cavity dumped some white substance on the seat and began to inhale it through her nose,” the report stated.
When police confronted her, they say Ahlers attempted to once more conceal the drugs. Police informed her she would be searched upon arrival at the jail, and would face more repercussions for being in possession of narcotics at a corrections facility. She then allegedly turned over her stash, which was “between her legs.”
Authorities also found a child in the couple’s vehicle, but noticed they had no food or diapers for the infant. They also observed that the child’s car seat was not properly affixed to the backseat and was “saturated with urine.”
Ahlers faces charges of drug possession, public intoxication, endangering the welfare of a minor, and evidence tampering.
