LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (WFLA) – A woman was arrested for attempting to bring CBD oil into Disney World’s Magic Kingdom.

According to an arrest affidavit, on April 15, an Orange County deputy was working in an off-duty capacity at Magic Kingdom.

Disney World security personnel notified the deputy that potentially illegal narcotics, believed to be THC oil, had been located.

The employee said he found the THC oil, labeled “Select CBD” in the purse of Hester Burkhalter, 69, when she put it on the table for inspection.

When the employee asked Burkhalter if it was CBD oil, she allegedly stated, “Is there a problem?”

She refused to answer if the bottle contained CBD oil.

The Orange County deputy tested the bottled using a marijuana presumptive drug test kit and got a positive result for the presence of THC.

Burkhalter was arrested for possession of hashish and trespassed from Disney property.

In an interview with NBC News, Burkhalter said the charges against her have been dropped.
