WASHINGTON COUNTY, Tenn. -

A traffic stop in Washington County, Tenn. leads to several prescription drug discoveries.

31-year-old Renee Luttrell of Afton, Tenn. was stopped for a minor traffic violation, but that was just the beginning.

According to Sheriff Ed Graybeal, Luttrell revealed she had pills.

After she was arrested, Graybeal says Luttrell pulled a bag of marijuana from her pants. Once inside the detention center Graybeal says officers discovered Luttrell had attempted to hide a bottle of 63-pills by inserting them into a body orifice.

Graybeal says Luttrell handed over the bottle of pills containing Clonazepam, Alprazolam and Diazepam.

Luttrell is charged with drug possession.
