A woman being booked into jail is facing a whole new set of charges after corrections officers found fourteen baggies of heroin "inside a body cavity."

Victoria Cooper, 39, and Michael Young, 42, had been arrested on charges of manufacturing or delivery of heroin and possession of a controlled substance, according to the DuPage County Sheriff’s Office. While Victoria was being booked into jail over the weekend, officials performed an x-ray body scan -- and noticed the heroin hidden in her "genital region," sheriff's officials say.

Cooper has been slapped with an additional charge of aggravated possession of a controlled substance and is due in court November 16th, court records indicate.
