A bra did not offer any help to hide drugs, according to police reports.

A Pennsylvania woman is in custody after police found 170 bags of heroin along with some marijuana, hidden in her bra.

Jasmine Ackerman, 33, of Cresco, appeared to have unusually large breasts when authorities stopped the vehicle in which she was a passenger for speeding and careless driving.

The traffic stop occurred on Route 940 on Thursday, in Tobyhanna Township, Pocono Summit.

Danielle Mitchell, the 27-year-old driver of the vehicle, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of heroin and prescription drugs.

Police searched Ackerman following the arrest of Mitchell, and made the discovery inside her bra after her breasts appeared unusually large.

A third person, Benjamin Fara, 22, who was also in the vehicle, was arrested for possession of marijuana.

Police said that Mitchell and Ackerman had bought heroin in Paterson, New Jersey, and had already distributed a portion of the stash before the arrest.
