KINGSPORT, TN (WVUE/CNN) -

Police in Tennessee discovered a loaded weapon hidden in a teenager's vagina.

Dallas Archer, 19, was arrested Monday in Kingsport for driving on a suspended license. When officers searched Archer before booking her into jail, they made the discovery.

Officials describe the weapon as a 4", .22-caliber revolver. Gun records indicate it was stolen in a car burglary in 2013.

Archer is now facing additional charges of possession of stolen property and bringing contraband into a jail.

Police say the owner of the gun is John Souther. He said it was stolen from his car while it was parked in front of his home.

"Oh gosh," Souther, 70, told The Smoking Gun after learning where his gun was found. He said the gun would need a "bath in bleach."

Archer was released from jail after posting $6,000 bond.
