Ashley Castaneda, 31 Texas (USA) – September 8, 2015
The Texas woman above was taken into custody in a suspected drug arrest and has been charged with violating state concealed firearms laws by lodging a fully loaded, snub-nosed handgun in her vagina. She was also charged with methamphetamine possession. There was also a man, Gabriel Garcia, 30 in the car along with her during the incident and was similarly charged with methamphetamine possession.
The car she was in was pulled over due to traffic violation. The officers who conducted their routine check found the drugs inside the vehicle, Waco police confirmed. On her way to jail, Castaneda told police that she had hidden a handgun in her vagina out of fear it could go off during the trip. The police said that they had conducted a body search at the scene but was not able to detect the weapon because of the way it was hidden confirmed Sergeant Patrick Swanton.
Officers immediately pulled over and a female police officer ran the search over Castaneda and discovered that she had loaded a Smith and Wesson pistol inside her body cavity. The weapon had a round chambered and a full magazine of bullets. “It is conceivable that the gun could have gone off inside our suspect and that would have been deadly because of the proximity to internal organs,” said Swanton.
While the above incident made its way as International news, this was not the first case of woman hiding guns in their vagina. Shocking and unimaginable as it may seem but it is true that there are other similar cases before.
Victoria Lundy, 41 Cleveland (USA) – February 2, 2006
Our next gutsy woman hails from Cleveland. Victoria Lundy hid a loaded .25 caliber semiautomatic gun inside her vagina so well that guards were not able to detect it during their extensive pat down search. While in the holding cell, she removed the gun and hid it in the toilet paper. The gun fell, discharged and the bullet hit the ceiling. Hearing the gunshot, the guards quickly ran in and recovered the weapon. Her picture is not available.

Dallas Archer, 19, Tenessee (USA) April 23, 2014
Dallas Archer hid a 4 inch North American Arms mini-revolver when she was caught up by the Police. She was originally booked for driving with a suspended license and arrested. In Kingsport jail, a female police officer performing a routine search found the concealed tiny weapon in her private part. It was a stolen gun. The original owner, John Souther, a retired car salesman from Kingsport said it was stolen last year while the car was parked right in front of his home. ‘Oh gosh’ said the owner upon hearing where it was hidden when the Police notified the rightful owner. She didn’t have any drug charges and it is still unknown why she was in possession of firearms. She was charged with gun possession and introducing contraband in jail and was released after posting $6,000 bond.
Looking at the details, it appears that they may not be the only ones who have had done this. This is because after all, we know about them because they were caught by the Police. What about the women who are not caught. I bet nobody would have their hand on such statistics involving guns hidden in the most unexpected places on earth. I cannot imagine the guts of these women who are willing to put their lives at risk by placing firearms inside their body. I hope that the other teenagers who may have read the news about these women will not be inspired enough to consider trying anything like this.
