Florida woman accused of hiding Xanax in her butt

A Florida woman accused of shoplifting was found with Xanax inside her buttocks, according to police.

Ginger Cooper, 28, was arrested last week at a Walmart Supercenter in Manatee County after she was observed sticking several items in her cart without paying for them, the Bradenton Herald reported. Deputies said a search revealed Cooper to "be in possession of three Xanax pills in a plastic bag which were concealed in her buttocks."

Cooper told deputies the pills belonged to a friend who asked her to hold them.
