A Pennsylvania woman tried to swallow the evidence after police pulled her over with bags of heroin in the car.
Tiffany Root, 29, was stopped by Lancaster police late Tuesday, at which point officers found controlled substances, according to the Lancaster Bureau of Police.
During transport to the hospital, Root “attempted to destroy” seven bags of heroin “by chewing/eating it,” police said.
Hospital staff was able to recover the bags by convincing Root to spit them out before swallowing.
Police also found 15 suboxone pills and more than 70 other pills without a prescription, police told Lancaster Online, as well as $907, two boxes of glassine bags, an electronic scale, multiple dime-sized bags and a cut straw.
She was charged with seven counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, possession of drug paraphernalia, tampering with physical evidence and driving without a valid license.
The passenger in her car, Thomas Seymour, was taken into custody on a bench warrant.
