Pa. Woman Found with Drugs, Cash and Loose Change Inside Her…
SCRANTON, Pa. ----“Change purse”---- Pennsylvania police said they discovered more than 50 bags of heroin, loose change and cash while performing a cavity search on a woman arrested last week.
Authorities say 27-year-old Karin Mackaliunas was detained last weekend by police for suspicion of burglary after she crashed her car Sunday evening. Scranton police say they found three bags of heroin in her jacket and after being taken to the police station she told investigators she had more hidden in her vagina.
Mackaliunas received a police escort by ambulance to Scranton Community Medical Centre where she was examined by a doctor.
Scranton Police said she had 54 bags of heroin, 31 empty plastic bags, eight and a half prescription pills and the clincher, $51.22 in cash hidden inside her vagina. I’m wondering why she wouldn’t add .78 cents to make it $53.00.
After doctors removed the items, Mackaliunas was returned to jail and charged with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and two counts of possession of a controlled substance, the Times-Tribune reports.
Following her March 14 arraignment, Mackaliunas was taken back into custody after failing to come up with her bail. Perhaps she should have seen all the possible angles and packed a little more cash.
After reading this story, I wonder how many people will give up cash all together in favor plastic only.
It’s rumored that Mackaliunas recently received a prison tattoo that read: “CVS Pharmacy NOW OPEN with ATM inside.”
On a serious note Mackaliunas is due back in court on March 21. At the time of this report it was not clear if she had an attorney.
