PHOENIX - Phoenix Police have arrested a woman who they say tried to conceal marijuana in her vagina during a traffic stop.

On the morning of April 15, an officer on patrol noticed an odor of marijuana while driving in the area of 9th Street and Bell Road. He observed a vehicle in front of him changing lanes erratically with its windows down, according to court documents. He initiated a traffic stop and the vehicle pulled into a Burger King.

As the officer approached the stopped car, he reported a strong smell of marijuana. He detained the driver, later identified as Alberto Reyna, and Reyna acknowledged he had a weapon in his back pocket – a loaded .380 handgun.

The officer also found a .45 caliber handgun in the center console -- also loaded, containing a magazine.

The officer asked the passenger of the car, 23-year-old Stephanie Anne Lopez, to sit on the curb with Reyna as he searched the vehicle.

Lopez then allegedly blurted out the marijuana was "in her pants." She then pulled a glass pipe and a clear plastic baggy containing a small amount of marijuana, according to documents. Police say she had concealed it in her vagina.

Lopez admitted to detectives that she hid the marijuana for her boyfriend, Reyna. She was booked into jail on charges of possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

As for Alberto Reyna, 25, he was booked on charges of possession of drug paraphernalia, drug violation, and possession of a weapon during a drug offense.
