TN officials say inmate smuggled loaded gun to jail in privates
KINGSPORT, Tenn. (AP) - Police in Tennessee say a 19-year-old woman smuggled a loaded gun into a jail after a cavity search revealed she had been hiding the weapon in her crotch.
A police report from Kingsport police says Dallas Archer was arrested this week on a charge of driving on a suspended license.
The report says a search at the Kingsport jail Monday turned up a loaded North American Arms 22-caliber mini revolver inside the woman. The reports say a computer check later revealed that the weapon had been stolen.
Archer is charged with possession of stolen property, illegal possession of a firearm and introducing contraband into the jail.
A clerk with the Sullivan County General Sessions Court says no attorney is listed for Archer.
