A teenager in the US state of Tennessee attempted to smuggle a loaded handgun into prison by concealing it inside her vagina, according to police.

19-year-old Dallas Archer was arrested at around 3:15pm on 21 April by police officers and taken to Kingsport jail for driving with a suspended sentence.

Officers found the gun when a female prison officer searched the teenager and noticed an ‘unknown object’ in Archer’s groin, according to a police report obtained by The Smoking Gun website.

Archer was then searched by two female officers in the bathroom, when they found the 4-inch weapon hidden inside her.

The mini revolver, which was valued at $250, is thought to have been stolen from a staff member of a car salesroom during a burglary.

Archer has since been charged with possession of stolen property, illegal possession of a firearm and introducing contraband into the jail.

A court clerk says no attorney is listed for Archer.
