    A Florida woman who was taken to jail for drug possession is facing additional drug charges after police found her trying to smuggle two crack pipes into jail through her genitals.

    Cynthia Scholes, 41, was a passenger in a car that was stopped for speeding by Gainesville Police on Wednesday night. The driver told police that they could search his car, according to a police report.

    Police found a cigar wrapper with about three grams of cannabis in the passenger seat occupied by Scholes, the report said.

    Scholes was searched, and she was found with a crack pipe in her purse, the report said.

    She was arrested, and on the way to jail, police asked her three times if she had narcotics on her, which she denied, according to the report.

    When Scholes passed through the X-ray machine at the jail, police found contraband inside her genitals, the report said.

    Police found two crack pipes on her, one that had about .01 grams of crack cocaine in it.

    Scholes was arrested for an additional charge of smuggling contraband in a detention facility. As of Friday morning, she was still being held in jail on a $10,000 bond, according to online jail records. It was not immediately known if she had an attorney.
