There are probably six million different jokes I could make about Ashley Cecilia Castaneda keeping a loaded Smith and Wesson inside of her vagina, but you know what – this is a family site.
So I’m just going to say this: when Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best.
Waco police pulled a loaded handgun from a woman’s vagina late Monday evening after a traffic stop led to a drug bust, officials said.
Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said officers stopped a 1998 Toyota Land Rover carrying a man and a woman at North 15th Street and Blair Street about 11 p.m. for a traffic violation.
During the stop, officers found 2.7 grams of methamphetamine under the driver’s seat and arrested the driver, identified as Gabriel Garcia, 30, on a charge of possession of methamphetamine in a drug-free zone. Police say the stop was within 1,000 feet of West Elementary School.
Another 29.5 grams of methamphetamine and a set of digital weighing scales were in the female passenger’s purse, Swanton said.
Ashley Cecilia Castaneda, 31, was arrested on the same charge, but while being transported to the McLennan County Jail, she reportedly told an officer she had a Smith and Wesson .22-caliber semiautomatic handgun lodged inside her vagina.
Officers stopped and called for a female officer, who retrieved the gun. The handgun had a round chambered and a full magazine of bullets, Swanton said.
“It was a safety concern for the victim who had a loaded firearm inside her body,” Swanton said. “Depending on a number of factors, that gun could have gone off by body movements or compression of the trigger.
“People have asked us, ‘Why are you even telling us this?’ The reason is because we want people to know this truly does happen,” he continued. “That was an extremely dangerous situation for everyone involved.”
It is a dangerous situation for me reading this. I could have been burned or electrocuted spilling this coffee all over my computer and other electronic equipment which I keep here on my desk. Certain people could possibly have a brain aneurysm triggered by reading this story.
Well, firstly, the charge in Texas for an ounce of meth is probably higher than the charge for an unregistered .22. It is also smaller, and if secured in quality plastic, much safer to keep inside of your vagina than a handgun with a round in the chamber.
And also, they were pulled over at a routine stop. The confrontation with the police was not expected. Implying that this woman simply had a personal routine which involves keeping a loaded gun in her vagina.
This was a lifestyle choice.
And why? In what situation would your position be in that situation be benefited by having a gun in your vagina? Based on what I know of female biology, I would imagine it would not be easy to pull out quickly.
Or was this some type of sexual thing, rather than a hiding place issue?
Someone should write a book about this case.
