(CBS/AP) PUNTA GORDA, Fla.- A South Florida woman was arrested on drug charges after she allegedly hid three rocks of crack cocaine under her dentures.
Charlotte County police officers say they made a traffic stop on Saturday after observing a pickup truck leave a known drug house.
They say Kimberly Maroney, the driver of the vehicle, appeared to be moving something around with her tongue inside of her mouth. When an officer asked her to open her mouth, he noticed she had two sets of dentures which he asked her to remove. That's when he spotted three large pieces of crack cocaine.
The 49-year-old Maroney was arrested on drug possession charges and later posted a $3,500 bond. It's unclear whether she's retained a crack attorney.
