Teenager Dallas Archer tried to smuggle gun into prison inside her body
Officers found the 4-inch weapon as they searched Ms Archer
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.
