A pregnant Pennsylvania woman was apparently caught on police surveillance footage with 89 packets of heroin hidden inside her body.
Glen Rock, New Jersey police pulled over 22-year-old Marina McCarthy on March 13 for a minor violation. Police say she and her boyfriend, Dakota Dunning, had been driving with temporary registration that was not visible, and when officers noticed track marks on his arms they began to suspect that there might be drugs in the car. McCarthy was handcuffed in the front of her body, as she was six months pregnant, and put in the police cruiser.
While officers didn't find any drugs in the car, surveillance footage from the police car showed McCarthy reaching in her pants numerous times. An officer later searched the young woman and reportedly retrieved 89 bags of heroin from a body cavity.
McCarthy was checked out by medical staff but refused to go to the hospital, and was subsequently charged and released pending a court appearance. She reportedly paid $1,000 bail with a check. Dunning, 27, was also released and given a court date for a prior arrest warrant. The couple's car was impounded.
