NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. — A New Port Richey woman who was arrested on an outstanding warrant over the weekend claims she "forgot" she had pills in her breasts, deputies say.

Pasco deputies say they arrested Rachel Newbury, 51, on the warrant Saturday before sending her to the Land O' Lakes Detention Center.

She was warned about not bringing contraband into the jail and told deputies she had nothing on her, according to the arrest affidavit.

Thirteen Clonazepam pills were found in between her breasts, the affidavit claims.

Deputies say Newbury admitted she had the controlled substance on her at the time of her arrest and forgot about them. She admitted she didn't have a prescription for the pills which belonged to a family member, according to law enforcement.

She was arrested again and faces charges for possession of a controlled substance and introducing contraband into a detention center.
