A College Station woman arrested early Friday on a driving while intoxicated accusation now faces felony drug charges after police say they found methamphetamine hidden in her vagina.
According to College Station police, an officer patrolling Texas Avenue around 2:45 a.m. noticed a car that appeared to be damaged driving slowly with its hazard lights activated. The officer stopped the car and spoke with the driver, Amanda Beth Dieringer, 37.
She was arrested on a driving while intoxicated charge and transported to the Brazos County Jail. Officers grew suspicious that she was high on drugs and requested a female deputy perform a strip search on Dieringer. During the search, authorities say a plastic bag containing crystal meth was found in Dieringer’s vaginal cavity.
She is charged with possession of meth and possession of a prohibited substance in a correctional facility, both third-degree felonies punishable by up to 10 years in prison. She is also charged with driving while intoxicated, a Class B misdemeanor punishable by up to 180 days in jail. She was released from the Brazos County Jail on $18,475 bond.
