A North Carolina woman is sitting in jail after it was discovered that she was hiding a handgun in her weave.
We’ve heard of bulletproof weaves before, but Uptown magazine reports that Tiffanie Lizette Bass was using her extensions as a holster!
Cops at Wake County Detention Center were already booking Tiffanie on other charges following her arrest during a nightclub raid when she asked to be excused the bathroom. As soon as she walked out, Sheriff Donnie Harrison said deputies noticed that he head was tipping to one side.
It was at this time that authorities found a .38-caliber handgun tucked into her weave, and a Raleigh Police Department rep said that it was unclear how the firearm had gone unnoticed before.
Tiffanie, who was arrested on an outstanding warrant, had already been facing charges for writing a worthless check. She’s now being held on $65,000 bond and she’s been saddled with charges for possession of a stolen firearm and resisting arrest.
