Individuals smuggling drugs into the Belize Central Prison are getting craftier every day. On Thursday, July 10, prison officers busted a smuggler with a most unusual stash spot. 25-year-old Quinn Melinda Arnold from the Conch Shell Bay area went to visit a male friend at the prison and was searched by a female prison officer. The officer informed Arnold that she was going to conduct a strip search upon her. Arnold told the officer she had her menstruation; however, that did not stop the search from proceeding. The officer found a bag of weed stashed inside Arnold’s vagina, covered by a pad. Arnold was handed over to Hattieville police who took her to the station and weighed the weed in her presence. The weed amounted to 10 grams; therefore, Arnold was charged with drug possession.

On Friday, July 11, Magistrate Hettie Mae Stewart remanded Arnold to prison after she pleaded guilty to one count of drug possession. She is set to reappear in court on Thursday, July 17, for sentencing.
