Woman with $26k in bra pleads guilty

A woman who had $26,000 in her bra when booked into the Spokane County Jail is to repay another $7,500 after pleading guilty to first-degree theft.

Lukeisha A. Harris, 25, was credited for three days already served in jail after her arrest in March 2010.

The Seattle-area resident was accused with Corey B. Jones, Charles H. Kendrick and Elicionne L. Washington of stealing thousands of dollars from Spokane banks.

The three were arrested at the North Pointe branch of Chase Bank after employees at the Washington Trust Bank, 438 E. Hastings Road, reported a “heavyset” woman in black clothes and pink shoes had tried to get money with a stolen credit card.

Harris matched the bank employee’s description of the culprit - she’s 6-feet tall and 400 pounds. Police found the cash stash, along with bank receipts, in Harris' bra during booking at the jail.

The Associated Press called it “a fraud bust, indeed” in a short story that quickly went viral and really just made other reporters wish they had thought of that.

A detailed description of the fraud is available here.


  

2 searches reveal meth in rectum, bra

Two law enforcement searches Sunday and Monday revealed methamphetamine in a man's rectum and in a woman's bra.

A jailer found 14 grams of meth in Richard D. Hall's shoe and “a bodily orifice” after the 27-year-old was arrested with a drug pipe, cash and scale during a traffic stop Sunday morning.

Deputies Chuck Sciortino and Jeff Thurman had stopped the Chevrolet Cavalier in which Hall was a passenger after they spotted it tailgating another westbound vehicle on Interstate 90 at the Sunset off-ramp, according to the Spokane County Sheriff's Office.

The deputy “obtained permission to search the car” after smelling marijuana, according to a news release, and found a meth pipe and marijuana in a purse belonging to driver Jenelle L. Cuculich, 24. 

Then on Monday, a jailer found meth, marijuana, and mushrooms in the bra of a woman arrested on a Department of Corrections escape warrant during a traffic stop.

Trisha L. Boulton, 25, (pictured) was a passenger in a 1993 Cadillac driven by her husband when Officer Justin Elliot stopped it for equipment and license violations about 1:30 a.m.

Boulton's husband wasn't cited.

In a news release, Sgt. Dave Reagan said Boulton  “probably wishes the contents of her bra had remained (Victoria’s?) secret.”
