A teenager dubbed the “Kitty of Crackland” was caught with drugs in her underwear at a hotspot for drug-dealing in Brazil, foreign media reports.
Lorraine Cutier Bauer Romeiro was allegedly found hiding cannabis in her bra and cocaine and crack cocaine in her knickers when she was strip-searched by police.
She was arrested in an area of the city of Sao Paulo dubbed Cracolandia (Crackland), due to the amount of drug dealing and public drug use, back in June this year.
Romeiro was released on bail because she had to look after her baby daughter.
However, she was quickly arrested for a second time after she failed to inform police she had changed addresses.
Romeiro was nicked at her boyfriend's house in the nearby city of Barueri in July with police finding a rucksack containing large quantities of cannabis, cocaine, crack cocaine, chloroethane and ecstasy.
The Judiciary of the Brazilian state of Sao Paulo denied a request of bail made by the lawyer so she could look after her daughter following the second arrest.
Judge Gerdinaldo Quichaba Costa said the reasons for her preventive custody still applied, and, as such, there was no justification for her provisional release.

He wrote: "Especially, the guarantee of public order, as the accused was arrested in flagrante delicto for the crime of drug trafficking, and was already undergoing other legal proceedings in relation to the same crime."
He rejected the possibility of house arrest, stating: "The defendant failed to comply with the same benefit in other legal proceedings recently."
According to investigators, Romeiro earned on average the equivalent of £818 per day from drug dealing.

The police believe she was a high-ranking drug dealer and they are investigating whether she was involved with a criminal gang.
