Woman claims meth found in vagina wasn't hers after arrest

OUACHITA PARISH, La. -- Police in Louisiana say they found meth when they did a body cavity search on woman who claimed the drug wasn't hers and she didn't know how it got there.

The Ouachita (WAH-shi-taw) Parish Sheriff's Office says 23-year-old Ashley Rolland of Galliano was arrested July 31 on a felony theft charge and possession of a controlled dangerous substance after a man she had been staying with for about a week complained she took about $5,000 off his dresser and left.

Authorities say a female correctional officer found, $6,233 along with "a clear plastic bag" of roughly 1 gram of methamphetamine in Rolland's vagina.

Rolland said it wasn't hers and she didn't know where it came from.

Bond was set at $8,000. Jail records don't indicate if she has an attorney.
