Amika Witt, a 20-year-old drug dealer from Illinois, was caught speeding along Interstate 55 last Thursday, September 7. Witt was going 90 mph when police stopped her a few miles north of Bloomginton.
Officers found heroin and ecstasy in her possession while searching the car, as reported by the Daily Mail. She and her accomplice, 29-year-old Clinton McDonald were taken to the McLean County jail.
“When you find drugs, you look for guns,” Sheriff Jon Sandage told The Pantagraph, but first responders found no weapons in Witt’s vehicle. Witt did have a loaded weapon in her posession, and she managed to carry it all the way to the jail house in “nature’s little pink holster.”
A female officer discovered a loaded Kimber .380 hidden inside Witt’s vagina following a strip search, which was part of the intake process at the McLean jail. Assistant State’s attorney Layne Roberts said the weapon had “a bullet in the chamber ready to fire.”
Fortunately for Witt, the weapon was never negligently discharged while in her possession.
Witt was charged with the possession of a weapon during the alleged commission of a felony, possession of narcotics, and intent to distribute. McDonald was also charged with possession of narcotics and intent to distribute.
