— A Golden Gate Estates woman is accused of smuggling marijuana into jail by hiding it in her genitals.

She told authorities she has nothing to do with the drug because she's a medical student on a scholarship, and was trying to keep her friends from getting in trouble, reports said.

Vida Golac, 18, of the 100 block of 25th Street Northwest, was arrested by Naples police officers Thursday at Golden Gate Parkway and Goodlette Frank Road. An officer stopped the car Golac was riding in with two others after seeing it drifting it between lanes, according to an arrest report. During a search of the car, the officer found marijuana in the back of the car near where Golac sat.

Golac said the drug wasn't hers because she's a medical student, and asked the officer to check with the other passengers to see if it was theirs, reports said. The other two passengers denied ownership and were allowed to leave while Golac was arrested.

On the way to the Naples Jail Center, Golac told the officer who arrested her he was "ruining her life" and she would now lose her scholarship — "all for something that wasn't hers."

However, jail deputies discovered additional marijuana in Golac's genitals during a strip search. Golac said she was trying to protect the others from getting in trouble.
