A pregnant woman was found hiding 89 packets of heroin inside her body.
Marina McCarthy, 22, who is 6 months pregnant, was seen on police dash cam placing drugs inside her private parts while sitting in a patrol car.
McCarthy from Gouldsboro, Pennsylvania, was arrested in New Jersey, while traveling with her 27-year-old boyfriend, Dakota Dunning.
The coupe was pulled over because the car he was driving had a temporary registration plate that was not visible.
Officers reportedly found that the vehicle was unregistered and uninsured. Both Dunning and McCarthy had warrants out for their arrests related to previous incidents.
A K-9 also detected an illegal substance in the car, according to police.
Dunning and McCarthy were arrested and taken to the Glen Rock Police Department in New Jersey, for further questioning.
When a detective reviewed the CCTV footage from the patrol car, it was discovered that McCarthy stuffed packages down her pants and into her body.
Police said that she had been handcuffed in front of her body because of her pregnancy, so she was able to access the zipper of her pants.
A police officer went with her to the bathroom and watched as McCarthy retrieved the bags from her body.
She was charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance. She was released after posting
$1,000 in bail.
Dunning was released and his car was impounded.
