Snatched: Cops Find Knives, Pills On Perp's Body
Woman's weapons, drugs hidden in fat rolls, privates
MAY 3--Meet Gloria Esther Perez.
The Florida woman was busted late last month on narcotics charges after cops broke up an altercation between Perez, 28, and another woman in the middle of a Fort Myers street.
After a Lee County Sheriff’s Office deputy noticed that Perez, who appeared nervous, “kept on putting her hands into her pockets and near her private area like she was trying to conceal something,” a female deputy was called to the scene to conduct a pat down.
The subsequent search revealed that Perez was in possession of hundreds of pills for which she did not have prescriptions. At this point, according to a probable cause statement, Perez became ill and was transported to a local hospital “for further examination.”
During that April 24 evaluation, medical staffers--likely to their surprise--discovered that Perez had hidden a knife in her vagina. But that wasn’t the only concealed weapon turned up at Gulf Coast Hospital.
The 5’ 4”, 180-pound Perez had a second knife “in a roll of fat in her stomach,” investigators reported. Additionally, a “bottle of pills was located in her body fat.”
Perez, pictured in the above mug shot, was booked into the county lockup on two weapons possession charges and a dozen narcotics counts. She remains jailed in lieu of $25,000 bond. (1 page)
