PASCO COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – A Tampa woman had a really bad hair day when she turned herself into the Land O’ Lakes Detention Center.

Pasco deputies say 31-year-old Arayia Lashona Hudson was allegedly hiding 94 pills underneath her hairpiece when she entered the jail on Wednesday.

Detention staff performed a pat-down search and found the pills sewn into the lining of her hairpiece.

Hudson was in possession of 35 Gabapetin capsules and 59 Tramadol pills, officials said. Tramadol Hydrochloride is classified as a Schedule IV controlled substance, but Gabapentin is not a controlled substance and is available by prescription only, according to deputies.

Hudson was arrested for bringing contraband drugs into jail and being in possession of a Schedule IV controlled substance. She was previously arrested for violating her probation after being arrested on a grand theft charge.

Hudson remains in custody at the Land O’ Lakes Detention Center.
