Cocaine tampon

Cocaine tampon

Cocaine tampon, Woman buys cocaine-stuffed tampons, Salt Lake City resident Cindy Davidson thought she was saving money when she purchased a box of discount tampons from a cut-rate store in Salt Lake City  But when she opened the box, she reportedly found that the tampons weren't so much tampons as they were hollowed out vessels filled with cocaine Boxes of tampons aren't usually like Cracker Jacks, where you expect to find a prize inside. But one woman in Utah recently discovered that her tampons came with an added bonus of some free cocaine. Anybody ready for a period party? Umm, yeah, not so much. Anyway, after purchasing a sealed box of tampons at a local salvage store in Salt Lake City, Cindy Davidson opened it and saw that some of the tampons inside had been altered. Specifically,
they'd taken out the tampon and packed the applicator with a white powdery substance wrapped in cellophane. The cellophane was so tightly taped that Cindy couldn't get it open and didn't know what was inside. She was going to wait until the next day to call the manufacturer, but then she thought better of it: "I started getting nervous because I thought it might have been a terrorist attack." Attack of the terrorist tampon!
She called the police instead, who sent a hazmat team. They quickly determined that they were dealing with good old-fashioned cocaine, which some clever smuggler had clearly been trying to move. Somewhere the plan must have gotten off track, because his product ended up in Cindy's house instead. The police are investigating, and the store has pulled the rest of the brand's boxes from the shelf. Cindy still can't quite believe this happened to her. She said, "I really couldn't wrap my head around it. … It was just crazy to me." As crazy as it is, it could have been a lot crazier, like if she hadn't noticed the applicator was chock full of coke BEFORE inserting it into her body.
Just For Her: Cindy Davidson, 39, unwittingly uncovered a smuggling operation in Salt Lake City when she unwrapped a tampon, only to find cocaine stashed inside
Cindy Davidson, 39, unwrapped the package she purchased at a Salt Lake City store and instead of finding cotton tampons, she found tiny packages of white powder stuffed inside the cardboard applicators.
Afraid of what the powder might be, she called police who identified the stashed substance as cocaine, which could be part of a sophisticated drug smuggling operation.
On Saturday, Ms Davidson stopped by a bargain store on 1600 South Empire Road to buy a pack of Crest White Strips, according to the Smoking Gun.
She saw an inexpensive box of Boots brand tampons and tossed it in her cart.
The store, NPS, sells damaged freight goods and unclaimed property at a steep discount.
The next day she opened the sealed cellophane box and did not find what she was looking for.

Afraid of what the powder might be, she called police who identified the stashed substance as cocaine - and it could be part of a sophisticated drug smuggling operation.

On Saturday, Ms Davidson stopped by a bargain store on 1600 South Empire Road to buy a pack of Crest White Strips, according to the Smoking Gun.

She saw an inexpensive box of Boots brand tampons and tossed it in her cart.

The store, NPS, sells damaged freight goods and unclaimed property at a steep discount.

The next day she opened the sealed cellophane box and did not find what she was looking for.

'I noticed there was packaging inside that wasn't normal,' she said to KSL.

'They had removed the tampon and there was cocaine inside.'

At first she didn't identify the white powder as the drug and tried to open it.

After five minutes of trying to open up the plastic-wrapped, fake tampon she got nervous.

'I thought it might have been a terrorist attack,' she said.

She called the police, who weren't able to immediately identify the substance.

The officer's investigation revealed it was cocaine.

'It appears to be a highly sophisticated way of attempting to smuggle or get drugs,' Detective Carlie Wiechman said to KSL.
Cindy Davidson is good at sniffing out bargains, so when the Salt Lake City mom saw tampons on sale last Saturday, she didn't exactly turn up her nose at a good deal.

However, inside the box, along with the tampons and the applicator was something extra: Cocaine.

"I didn't look like it was tampered at all," she told KTVX-TV. "There was cellophane filled with white powder."

The powdery substance was rolled up in thick cellophane and taped shut inside the cardboard applicator.

It was wrapped so tight she spent five minutes trying to open it and still couldn't," Davidson, 39, told KSL-TV.

The box of Boots tampons -- a British brand -- was supposed to contain 16 tampon. She noticed, however, some inconsistencies in they way they were packed. When she found the suspicious little package inside, her heart began to race -- and it certainly wasn't the euphoria coke users experience.

"I started getting nervous because I thought it might have been a terrorist attack," she told KSL-TV. "I called my sister first and said I was going to call the manufacturer the next day and she told me to call the police."The authorities tested the substance and confirmed it was cocaine -- which shocked the mother of two.

"I really couldn't wrap my head around it," she told the New York Post. "I was just thinking it was crazy. I couldn't believe it had happened."

The manager of the store that sold the drug-laced feminine hygiene products has removed the remaining Boots tampons and Salt Lake City police are attempting to backtrack the shipment to determine whether other packages contain narcotics, The Smoking Gun reported.

Meanwhile, Stan Alexander, the Director of Security of NPS, the bargain store that sold the cocaine tampons, said more details need to be sniffed out before it can be determined how the cocaine got into the product box.

“Without knowing the customer, without knowing the product specifically on this situation we just have no information to try and figure out where it came from," Alexander told KTVX-TV.
