BULLS GAP, Tenn. — A woman severely injured herself last week after she attempted to remove hidden money inside her rectum that she had stolen from her boyfriend.
TimesNews reported that Christine Black, 43, had fallen for a trap her boyfriend set up for her that included placing drugs and two envelopes containing $4,000 and $1,000 in an old medicine bag, and putting it on a foosball table. Her boyfriend woke from a nap and noticed the bag and cash were missing, according to the report.
Black’s boyfriend confronted her with the theft and she reportedly vomited partially dissolved pills from the baggy, according to the report.
“He then asked her where the money was, and she admitted to him she’d wrapped it up and stuck it in her rectum,” Hawkins County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Michael Allen stated in his report. “Black admitted (to Allen) to taking the money and medication because Mr. Gulley was going to kick her out and she needed money for a place to live.”
Black attempted to remove the cash with a toilet brush and tongs, but was unsuccessful, according to the report.
“She was bleeding severely and was transported to the Hawkins County (Memorial Hospital) emergency room,” Sgt. Allen said. “The wad of money was removed and collected as evidence.”
Black remains listed in fair condition at a local hospital and an arrest warrant has been issued — charging Black with theft over $1,000, according to the report.
