Woman Found With Bag Of Meth Disguised As A Hair Bow
Seriously, this is either really really stupid, or genius.
Often, the best place o hide things is in plain sight, right? Who would believe that someone would be dumb enough to strap a baggie full of drugs to their head?
Well, whatever it is, the risk didn't pay off for Jessica Bernice Kropp. She got busted.
Talk about being accessory to a crime, eh?
It started in Flippin, Arkansas, when Officer Kenneth Looney spotted a Dodge Neon driving with an expired registration. He stuck on the lights and tried to pull the car over.
Kropp, who was presumably a bit scared about getting pulled over for obvious reasons, didn't stop for the officer initially, but eventually relented and brought the car to a halt.
When asked for a driving licence, Kropp informed Officer Looney that it was expired. Oh, and she had no insurance, and no idea where the registration of the car was as she'd borrowed it.

That's bad enough, but once the policeman ran her name, he discovered that she also had five active warrants for her arrest, four more warrants for failure to appear in court, and another final one for failure to pay fines.
No wonder she didn't want to pull over.
Things were to get worse for her. As she was alighting the car to be placed under arrest, the copper spotted that she had a very strange ornament in her hair.
In a later affidavit, Officer Looney wrote: "As I was detaining Jessica Kropp, I observed what appeared to be a bow in her hair. The bow appeared to be a small, zip-locked bag containing a white crystal-like substance of suspected methamphetamine.
"The baggie had a small rubber band around the middle, giving it a bow shape and was attached to a bobby pin. The substance was affixed to the right side of her head, attached to her hair.
"I said, 'Are you serious?' She said, 'What?' I said, 'You have a bow in your hair made from a bag of meth'. She said, '[expletive deleted], I didn't know that was there, someone else put that there and I didn't know what it was'."
We're not done yet.
After begging the officer not to tow her car, she revealed that she had more drug paraphernalia, including a vape pen with THC and meth oil, another with just THC, and 'multiple bags' of meth.
She was arrested and charged with possession of meth with intent to supply, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving without insurance and driving with a suspended licence.
Kropp was taken to Marion County jail, where she was held in custody in lieu of a $23,210 (£18843.15) bail bond.
