In Florida, drug addicts seem to enjoy hiding their crack pipes in dangerous places. 

Back on Aug. 14, police in Fort Pierce, Fla. noticed 46-year-old Oliver Johnson creeping near a home. Though he denied having any drugs or paraphernalia on his person, an X-ray showed that there was a crack pipe inside of his stomach. He was taken to a hospital to have it removed immediately. 

Just two days later, 29-year-old Amanda Goss was busted for violating a trespass warning in Vero Beach, Fla. During a pat down, an Indian River County Sheriff's deputy informed her that transporting drugs into a jail facility is a felony. Goss insisted that she wasn't holding anything, but a strip search revealed a crack pipe hidden inside of her vagina. 

Johnson was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and cocaine, tampering with evidence and introduction of contraband. Goss was charged with introduction of contraband into a detention facility and trespass after warning.

These methods of crack pipe storage are bad ideas, health risks aside. The law always seems to win.
