LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A Louisville woman is facing drug charges after Metro Corrections officers find an abnormality in her body scan during processing,

According to police documents, Whitney Poston, 24, was being processed on other charges when her body scan showed she has something hidden.

Officers said they asked Poston before the scan if she had any drugs or weapons on her person and she said no. After the scanner proved different, police said Poston admitted to hiding two syringes in her vagina because she did not want to get caught with them.

It is not clear why Poston was originally arrested, but she is now facing additional charges of tampering with physical evidence, possession of drug paraphernalia and promoting contraband.
