A Tennessee woman is facing additional charges after corrections officers discovered a loaded revolver hidden in her vagina.
According to authorities, 19-year-old Dallas Archer was being booked into a Kingsport jail for driving with a suspended license when a female corrections officer discovered an “unknown object” that the teen was hiding. The officer alerted the staff and accompanied Archer into the bathroom for further examination.
There, the officer discovered a “North American Arms 22 LR revolver (loaded) which Ms. Dallas had concealed in her vagina.”
The report reads “Dallas Archer had been arrested for driving on a suspended license. A female jailer performed a search of Ms. Archer and located an unknown item in her crotch. The jailer along with Ptl. Karen Watkins checked Ms. Archer in the bathroom and recovered a North American Arms 22 LR revolver (loaded) which Ms. Dallas had concealed in her vagina. The pistol was recovered and checked thru NCIC and was stolen from an auto burglary in 2013. I charged Ms. Dallas Archer with possession of a firearm, introduction into a penal facility, and poss. of stolen property.”
The gun, four inches in length, was found to be stolen from a retired car salesman. According to the gun’s owner, 70-year-old John Souther, his gun was taken from his 1994 Mustang after it was “ransacked” last year. When told of the gun’s journey, Souther replied “Oh gosh.” He said he would like “the little fellow” back but noted that it needed a “bath in bleach” first.
After originally being booked for driving with a suspended license, Archer is now charged with gun possession and trying to smuggle contraband into a penal facility. She has been released after posting $6000 bond.
