Denzer's trickery couldn't fool a drug-sniffing dog.

A drug-sniffing dog found a considerable amount of methamphetamine -- and a pipe -- in Nicole Denzer's vagina. Apparently she forgot to pack a lighter.

Denzer, a 23-year-old Circle Pines resident, was traveling northbound on Lexington Avenue near 97th Lane Northeast around 5 a.m. the morning of October 2 when an officer observed her drive over a median. She had unspecified drugs in her car and was arrested for possession of a controlled substance, but little did officers know that was just the tip of the iceberg.

WCCO tells us about what happened next:

When [Denzer] was taken to Anoka County Jail, a drug-sniffing canine performing a search of the jail's containment units began closely sniffing Denzer's crotch, the complaint says.

Denzer told police she was hiding drugs in her vagina, the charges state, and pulled out a clear plastic bag containing 17 grams of methamphetamine and a pipe.

She has been charged with second-degree possession of a controlled substance and with introducing drug contraband into a jail

Denzer faces up to 25 years in prison and $500,000 in fines on the controlled substance charge, and another year in prison and $3,000 in fines on the contraband charge.

We're left to assume Denzer set out the morning of October 2 with the intention of smuggling drugs into jail. Because otherwise, wouldn't the glove box have been a much more comfortable option?
