Cocaine 'In My Coochie': Samantha Kurdilla, Pennsylvania Woman, Admits Smuggling Drugs In Vagina

What happens in Tijuana, stays in Tijuana, right? Well, unless you're Samantha Kurdilla.

Kurdilla and a companion, James Perry, were arrested Jan. 15 after a drug-sniffing dog at the U.S.-Mexico border "alerted to a narcotic odor" in the woman's "groin area."

According to a statement of probable cause, the 22-year-old Pennsylvania woman twice denied that she was bringing anything back from Mexico.

But despite those denials, U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents determined that Kurdilla had a condom filled with 100 grams of cocaine -- worth several thousand dollars -- “within her vaginal cavity,” according to the Smoking Gun.

Kurdilla admitted to smuggling the drugs after her arrest. Authorities searched her mobile phone and found texts, including one to an unknown person that said, “I’m smuggling cocaine and heroin in my coochie." Authorities said they found only cocaine on Kurdilla.

MSN dubbed Kurdilla's text an "instant classic."

Jezebel, on the other hand, used Kurdilla as a sort of cautionary tale for other would-be felons.

"Don't write the details of your unsavory transactions anywhere, whether it be in your diary or GMail. Locks can be picked, email can be hacked, nowhere is safe!" wrote Jezebel's Laura Beck.

Although, in this case, it wasn't the sloppy text but the drug-sniffing poochie that outed the coked-up "coochie."

This isn't the first time that a woman has tried to hide drugs inside her body, either. In October, a Philadelphia woman tried to stash 36 vials of crack cocaine in her vagina after an alleged drug deal backfired.

In December, Spanish authorities arrested a woman with what turned out to be three pounds of cocaine implanted in her breasts.
