OKLAHOMA CITY – Police say they found unusual items in an Oklahoma City woman while they were booking her into jail.

On Oct. 9, police were called to the Belle Isle Walmart after an employee noticed a woman allegedly place multiple items into reusable bags and then leave the store without paying for the items.

When the Walmart employee approached the woman in the parking lot and asked her to accompany him to the Asset Protection office, the woman allegedly refused and tried to run away.

Walmart security then took the woman into custody.

According to the police report, the woman left the store with about $306 worth of items.

Police then arrested the woman, who they later identified as 55-year-old Cherie Swindall, and transported her to the Oklahoma County Jail.

Police say Swindall was in the process of being booked into jail when officers discovered she had hidden two lighters inside her vagina.

Since detention officers believed she may have something else inside of her, she was transported to a local hospital for x-rays.

According to the police report, an x-ray showed no additional items were inside of her.

After she was medically cleared, she was transported back to the Oklahoma County Jail.
