A Utah woman got the shock of her life when she purchased a box of tampons Sunday - only to discover the box was filled with cocaine.
According to the Smoking Gun, 39-year-old Cindy Davidson's discovery has prompted an investigation by Salt Lake City cops, who suspect that the stuffed tampons were part of a drug smuggling scheme that somehow went off the rails.
Davidson purchased the tampons at the NPS Store, which describes itself as a "salvage and freight recovery company that sells its products in two stores in Salt Lake City."
Davidson, who had gone to the store to purchase Crest Whitestrips, bought the Boots brand tampons “because they were cheap,” according to a posting on her Facebook page. Davidson, a mother of two, added that she had never heard of Boots, which are produced by a British-based health and beauty conglomerate.
After discovering the stash hidden inside the applicators of individual tampons, Davidson called the police, who conducted a field test and confirmed that the powdery substance was cocaine.
Davidson told her 300 friends on Facebook:
"No one would ever believe what has happened 2 me 2nite. I bought a package of tampons filled with cocaine bags. I have had hazmat and the police at my house all night. I will post details as they become available. Totally tripping out."
What a crazy discovery by Davidson!
