A 19 year old Las Cruces woman is insisting that cops should foot the bill for a forcible cavity search that turned up nothing illegal. The woman, who is not being named or identified because she was not arrested or criminally charged, was taken to Memorial Medical in Las Cruces for a cavity search after police arrested her on suspicion of drug possession.

The search found nothing, and she was later billed more than $1100 for the procedure, which she is refusing to pay. The woman was held for several hours on what cops call "credible information" that she was hiding an ounce of heroin inside a certain body cavity that shall remain nameless.

UPDATE: Metro Narcotics Agency has paid the bill.

This story reminds me of a 'Family Guy' episode:
