That's Not My Meth

8/2 UPDATE: Turns out $6233 was also inside the accused woman

AUGUST 1--A Louisiana woman arrested yesterday denied ownership of methamphetamine that was discovered inside a plastic baggie lodged in her vagina, according to a probable cause affidavit.

Ashley Beth Rolland, 23, was questioned early Wednesday by police after a man accused her of stealing $5000 from his home. The victim, Eugene Dix, told West Monroe Police Department officers that Rolland had stayed with him in his apartment for the last week.

Dix alleged that while he was showering, Rolland took his cash and left the residence. The affidavit identifies Dix as Rolland’s boyfriend.

During a subsequent interview with cops, Rolland, seen above, reportedly confessed to swiping the money, which was recovered during a “consensual search of Rolland’s person” by a female correctional officer. The exact amount seized from Rolland was $6233.

The female jailer also discovered a “clear plastic bag containing approximately 1 gram of methamphetamine inside Rolland’s vagina.” The suspect, however, “denied ownership of the methamphetamine.”

It does not appear that Rolland explained to police how someone else’s meth found its way into her body cavity.

Rolland was charged with theft and narcotics possession, both felonies, and booked into the Ouachita Parish jail. She is being held in lieu of $8000 bond. (2 pages)
