A 33-year-old woman learned the hard way that urine can land her in jail for drug possession.

Cindy Wingo of Roebuck, South Carolina, was arrested on a charge of possession of drugs after officers found urine on her.

A Spartanburg County sheriff deputy was patrolling an area when he spotted Wingo and a man hanging around an abandoned house.

The officer stopped to speak with the couple, who said that they were looking at the house because they were considering buying it, according to the police report.

However, the deputy said that he recognized Wingo from previous encounters involving drugs. He called for backup. Officers then asked to search their car.

When they consented to the search, officers found a medicine bottle full of urine. Apparently, urine of meth users have traces of the drug inside, and “experts” can remove the drugs from the urine for reuse.

Knowing this, the sheriff tested the urine and confirmed that it contained methamphetamine. Wingo was placed in handcuffs and taken to jail.
