Deputies say while a woman was being searched, she tried to grab and eat a gram each of marijuana and meth that she had hidden in her vagina on Thursday night.

28-year-old Desiree Romero and 26-year-old Thomas Duke were taken into custody after a deputy saw marijuana bundles in the back of the van they were driving in.

According to the deputy, a large sign was in the back window attempting to hide the bundles.

The deputy says both Duke and Romero appeared nervous and claimed to not know each other while stopped off I-10, in the middle of Casa Grande and Picacho.

14 bundles of marijuana weighing 340 pounds, with a street value of $272,000, were found inside the van.

Deputies say Romero also had a vial of meth and a pipe in her purse.

Both Duke and Desiree were searched and asked if they had any drugs on their person before being transported to jail. They said they had none.

While Romero was searched again at the jail, deputies say she tried to grab and eat a gram each of marijuana and meth, which were hidden in her vagina.

Detention officers were able to get the drugs out of her mouth before the evidence was destroyed.

Duke is on parole for forgery, identity theft and other prior criminal offenses.

He was charged with possession of marijuana for sale, transportation of marijuana and possession of marijuana.

Romero was charged with possession of marijuana for sale, transportation of marijuana, possession of marijuana, possession of a dangerous drug, possession of drug paraphernalia and promoting prison contraband.
