FRANKLIN COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) - An inmate is facing additional charges, accused of smuggling meth inside the jail in a "body cavity." 

Jennifer Larkin was pulled over for a traffic stop Sunday. Deputies found drug paraphernalia on her person, and they found under her vehicle's seat a box that contained needles and was filled with paraphernalia.

When Larkin was being booked into the jail, other inmates alleged that she had drugs and staff became suspicious of her activities.

On Thursday, a small bag was discovered on her bunk. The bag contained meth. It was later discovered that Larkin smuggled the drug in via a body cavity.

Larkin is being held on a $17,000 bond.
