A woman has been charged with grand theft after police officers found four Rolex watches hidden in her vagina during a strip search.
Delajurea Brookens, 29, met 46-year-old businessman Ramon Diaz at a nightclub on Miami Beach on Tuesday.
The pair went back to his hotel room, but when Diaz came out from the bathroom he noticed that his velour Crown Royal whisky bag - which contained five watches worth a total of $108,000 (£83,991) - was nowhere to be seen.
Diaz is then said to have fled the hotel with Brookens in pursuit. As she attempted to hail a taxi, Brookens noticed his bag in her purse and demanded she return it. But police said she was able to beat Diaz to the ground with an unknown object.
She was soon found in a nearby alleyway and officers say she kicked windows, spat and bit during her arrest. Having detained her, officers looked in the bag and scoured the area, but could only find one of the businessman's expensive watches.
It was only after police conducted a strip search that they found the other four watches, which were stashed inside her vagina.
Brookens - who has a tattoo on her left arm that reads 'whore' - was charged on Wednesday with grand theft, resisting an officer with violence, possession of cocaine and battery. She was also charged with 'criminal mischief' after urinating in her holding cell.
She has now been released from jail after posting a $22,000 (£17,107) bond and her hearing has been scheduled for 7 February.
Miami Springs Police Chief, Armando Guzman, told the Miami Herald that such crimes were common place (exploitation of affluent outsiders that is, not stowing upmarket watches in vaginas).
He said: "These individuals are very good at targeting victims, especially business people from out of town."
Fortunately for Diaz, his watches have been returned, though he will presumably have to fork out a bit to get them professionally cleaned.
While the police officers involved in the strip search were no doubt shocked by their discovery, they are by no means the first to find something unexpected in a vagina.
Last year in Tenerife, police questioned a British woman after medics found a dead turtle inside her vagina. The woman went to A&E complaining of a pain in her genital area and was believed to have picked up an infection from the dead animal. The woman reportedly had 'no idea' how it ended up there.
So be careful where you sit, ladies, and fellas as well for that matter - all sorts of things can slip up there.
