Florida woman found hiding needles, pipe inside body

One Florida woman picked a dark place to hide drug paraphrenalia, according to deputies.

A Martin County Sheriff’s Office deputy pulled over Heather Zachman, 28, of Jensen Beach, who authorities say was driving on Oct. 4 with a suspended license, TCPalm.com reported. What the deputy found was hardly ordinary.

As Zachman left her car, she gave the deputy a $1 bill with crack cocaine, though the deputy noticed she was hiding something between her legs, according to TCPalm.

But the trip to jail is when things began getting strange.

After she started squirming, Zachman eventually told the deputy she had two hypodermic needles and a pipe used for smoking cocaine in her buttocks, according to the arrest report.

She was arrested and faces a felony charge of cocaine possession and a misdemanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia.
