A bizarre story of an Illinois arrest gives new meaning to the term “cock holster” that was popularized by leftist late-night television show host Stephen Colbert.
Following a stop for speeding, police conducted a search of the vehicle that 20-year-old moll Amika Witt was in and after discovering illegal drugs, took her 29-year-old Clinton McDonald into custody.
Once Ms. Witt was taken to the McLean County jail, booking deputies did a body cavity search and found a .380-caliber hand gun that the suspect had stuffed up her vaginal orifice.
The kicker – it was loaded!

According to The Smoking Gun “Cops: Female Drug Suspect, 20, Had Loaded Handgun In Body Cavity”:
A woman being booked into an Illinois jail had a loaded handgun hidden in her vagina, according to corrections officers who found the weapon during a strip search of the suspect.
Amika Witt, 20, and a male acquaintance were arrested early Thursday morning after their car was stopped for speeding on Interstate 55 just north of Bloomington. A police search of the vehicle and its occupants turned up heroin and Ecstasy.
Witt, seen at right, was subsequently transported to the McLean County jail, where the intake process included a strip search.
During the search of Witt, a female jailer recovered a loaded Kimber .380 caliber handgun from the suspect’s vagina.
The gun had a fully loaded clip and a bullet in the chamber.
The handgun weighs 13.4 ounces with an empty magazine and is 5.6” long.
Additional details are provided by Northern Illinois newspaper the Pantagraph “Gun found in strip search of woman at McLean County jail”:
Witt is charged with armed violence by possessing a weapon during the alleged commission of a felony and while in possession of drugs, and possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.
A passenger in the car, Clinton McDonald, 29, of Springfield, Mo., was charged with unlawful possession of heroin with intent to deliver the drug, and unlawful possession of ecstasy.
After Witt was taken to the McLean County jail, a female correctional officer found the Kimber .380-caliber handgun inside the suspect’s body, said Roberts. The gun had a fully loaded magazine and “a bullet in the chamber ready to fire,” said the prosecutor.
McLean County Sheriff Jon Sandage said a complete body search is performed on all suspects brought into the facility on drug charges. It is not uncommon for people accused of dealing drugs to be armed, he added.
“When you find drugs, you look for guns,” said Sandage.
The weapons incident, while unusual, is not the first time a gun has been brought into the jail, said the sheriff.
The perp was guilty of multiple counts of stupidity in this case.
One: she shouldn’t have been dealing with drugs.
Two: She shouldn’t have stuffed a LOADED gun up her cooze.
Three: when you are engaged in a crime for God’s sake, ease off the accelerator. She likely would have never been caught if it wasn’t for hear lead foot.
