A Massachusetts woman arrested when police found heroin and pills hidden underneath her padded underpants told police she wore the unusual garment because "I don't have a butt," police say.
Jill Roy, 33, and a passenger were both arrested during a traffic stop in Buzzards Bay last month when police say they found bags of pot and pills in Roy's car.
Bourne police said that when they first pulled Roy over Sept. 16, they found a large bag of marijuana under the front passenger seat. Then, as they were escorting her to the cruiser, a makeup bag containing several straws and various pills, some of them crushed, fell from her pants, also.
At the police station, Roy admitted the pot was hers and said she had a medical marijuana card, though she didn't have it with her.
Roy was then searched again, and an officer found her underwear had a hard exterior.
"I don't have a butt, so I wear these and another pair of underwear under it," Roy explained, according to police.

Police told her to take off the hard outer layer of underpants, and they found a bag of heroin and several bags of painkillers inside the underwear she was wearing underneath.
Roy was ordered held on $5,000 cash bail. She was charged with a variety of felony and misdemeanor narcotics charges.
Roy has a very lengthy criminal record, according to the police report.
