WINONA, MINN. (AP) -- A 20-year-old woman faces drug charges after police found cocaine and marijuana hidden in her bra. Buffalo County police notified authorities in Winona Thursday that a car headed their way may have been involved in a drug deal.
A Winona officer pulled over the vehicle and searched the woman. Deputy Chief Tom Williams said that turned up about 100 grams of marijuana and 4.25 grams of cocaine in her bra. He says she was also carrying about $600 in cash.

My Thoughts:I don't know about your local police, but if I was stopped by a police person who stated they wanted to search my bra....well, wouldn't you protest? I mean, I know they said the car's driver was suspected to have been involved in a drug deal, but a woman has rights, you know?
What would defend this Police Officer's searching the woman's bra to the Judge? Would the Police Officer say on the stand: "Well, you see, I pulled her car over and when she unrolled her window, I thought: Wow! What a set of knockers! Are they real? Or are they full of cocaine? So, of course, Judge....I had no choice but to frisk her and her bra. A LOT.
I mean, how would Dolly Parton deal with the situation? Or what about all those women who got breast implants?
Think if this had been a man in the car that was pulled over? Would the Police Officer have said: Well, you see, I pulled his car over and when he unrolled his window, I thought: Wow! What a large dumbstick! Is he excited to see me, or is he packing cocaine? Maybe I better frisk and search his junk!"
And don't even get me started on the frisking scenario that must have taken place! (Well, okay...if you insist!):
Police Officer: Excuse me M'am. Please get out of the car and put your arms up.
Woman: Put my arms up?
Police Officer: Yep. You know, like at the Doctor's, when they are looking for lumps. Put your other arm behind your neck..... Let me see, I am going to examine them in a clock-wise motion. Damn. Or was it counter-clockwise? I can never remember.
Woman: This is highly unusual, Officer. And you seem to be taking unusually long to frisk me. And, are you seriously frisking my boobs???????!!!!
Police Officer: Please be quiet. Do you usually feel a slight lump around 2 o'clock there? Do you have a history of fibro in your left one? Because it feels a little lumpy there. Lumpy, in a good kind of way........
Woman: Officer, I protest. I have never seen a Police Officer smile when frisking anyone. Not to mention taking over ten minutes!!!! Are we done yet?
Police Officer: No fibro history? Just give me another few minutes here. I'm just getting started. I may not have gotten a bonus this year, but yessiree, there are some perks to being a patrol officer, you know what I mean......
Woman: I insist you stop! All the women in my family are large-busted. Really. I mean, I didn't think it was against the law. What state is this, anyway?
Police Officer: No fibro in your family? Well, there are definitely lumps there.....According to my police training book, Chapter 2, line 5: Then, you MUST be packing cocaine.
You have the right to remain silent.......By the way, do you have a sister?????
