 A jailed woman hides lighter 'where the baby comes out'

Franklin County jail officials have probably not had a case like this.  On Tuesday evening around 7 PM, corrections deputies became aware that a female inmate had started numerous fires shortly after her arrival that same day.

The suspect, identified as Quantica Knox of Pasco, was found to have smuggled a lighter into the jail and evaded the standard searches before being placed in a cell. It's how she smuggled it that's very strange, probably disgusting.

Franklin County jail officers said she concealed the lighter inside a place they could not see or access, namely her private parts...think of where the baby comes out.

She smuggled it in, then used the lighter to start at least three fires. Fortunately, they were small and quickly contained. She then stuck the lighter back inside.

   Surgical procedure was required to remove it

We don't know if it got stuck, or she refused to produce the item for evidence but Knox was taken to an area hospital where it was removed by doctors. Then it was saved as evidence.

She now has more felony charges added to those she was booked for, including reckless burning and (in layman's terms) attempting to smuggle contraband items into the jail.
