Woman Jaìled For Hiding Fully Loaded Gun In Her [email protected]
Amy Wilhite, 39, brought the .22 calibre revolver to Boone County Jaìl in Missouri, the US, on February 14, fully loaded with five rounds.
Officers carried out a pat and a strip search but failed to find the w£apon.
They didn’t track it down until 17 days later, at which point it was wrapped up in plastic among White’s possessions, The Smoking Gún reports.
In a probable cause statement, investigators alleged that Wilhite had “removed the fìrearm from her body and concealed it within her personal belongings.”
During questioning at the jail, Wilhite admitted possessing the fìrearm, but claimed “she was only holding it for another female detainee.”
However, fellow inmates in Wilhite’s housing unit “all stated Amy was in possession of the fìrearm,” an investigator reported.
She later pleaded guilty to “delivery or concealment” of the weapon at a Circuit Court hearing.
