Horace woman charged with hiding broken meth pipe in vagina
Jeana Marie Smart, 26, was charged Monday in Cass County District Court with one count of Class C felony possession of drug paraphernalia.
Court documents filed with the case state that Officer Michael Benton was called Sunday to a rear-end crash in the 3500 block of Main Avenue.
Smart had allegedly hit another car that had slowed down for westbound traffic.
Smart also had an unrelated warrant out on drug and drug paraphernalia charges, and Benton arrested her.
As the pair left the squad car, the police report states Benton noticed blood where Smart sat. Smart said she was menstruating.
The report states blood continued dripping down her legs and onto the jail floor inside the booking area.
A search allegedly revealed a broken glass meth or crack pipe and a capped syringe within Smart’s vagina.
She was taken to Essentia Health’s emergency room, where medical staff removed additional broken glass.
Her bail was set at $2,000.
