BLOOMINGTON, IL — A Missouri woman who had a loaded handgun hidden in her vagina at the time of her arrest has pleaded guilty to weapons possession and narcotics charges.
Anika Witt, 27, and Clinton McDonald, 29, were arrested last September after police made a traffic stop on I-55 north of Bloomington. Police searched their vehicle and found heroin and Ecstasy, The Smoking Gun reports.
Witt and McDonald were arrested and, after Witt was taken to the McLean County Jail, she was strip searched. That’s when a female jailer recovered a Kimber .380 caliber handgun from Witt’s vagina. The gun was fully loaded, and had a bullet in the chamber.
Witt faces up to 10 years in prison on the gun charge and 15 years in custody on a heroin possession charge, but prosecutors agreed to drop other charges following a plea deal in which she agreed to testify against McDonald. As a result of her cooperation, prosecutors say her sentence will most likely be significantly reduced.
Witt has been arrested multiple times in the past for charges including theft, passing bad checks, and resisting arrest.
