INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — Jennifer Todd told jail deputies a “foreign shape” found near her groin area was a sanitary product.
Todd, who was being arrested for an unrelated offense, then said, “I’m not going to lie to you. It’s drugs,” reports show. The mysterious object tested positive for cocaine, deputies said.
When deputies asked Todd why she hid cocaine in her lower body, she replied, “I don’t know. That’s just my little hiding spot,” reports show.
Deputies arrested Todd, 40, of the 1800 block of 40th Avenue, Vero Beach, on charges of introduction of contraband into a detention facility, possession of cocaine, tag not assigned to vehicle and driving with a suspended license. Todd was held Tuesday at the Indian River County Jail on a $11,000 bond.
An Indian River County patrol deputy spotted Todd driving a green Ford Taurus about 4:30 a.m. Friday near the 7600 block of 20th Street. The deputy ran the vehicle tag and discovered the tag was not assigned to the Taurus, reports show.
The deputy pulled the vehicle over and spoke to Todd, who could not provide her vehicle insurance, registration, or a valid driver’s license, reports show.
The deputy learned Todd’s license was suspended Feb. 2. The deputy arrested Todd and took her to the county jail for booking.
When jail deputies inspected Todd for contraband, they found a mysterious shape near her groin area, reports show. Deputies ordered Todd to remove what they thought was a sanitary product.
When Todd lifted her undergarments, a folded piece of foil wrapper fell from her groin area, reports show. A white rock-like substance found inside tested positive for cocaine, deputies said.
Deputies asked Todd why she didn’t mention the cocaine during the traffic stop. Todd replied, “I don’t have anything to lose,” reports show.
Deputies arrested Todd. Her arraignment is 8:45 a.m. Oct. 29, court records show.
