A Tennessee woman got caught stealing some cash, but she couldn’t give the money back.

Christie Black faces theft charges for stealing $5,000 from her boyfriend.

The boyfriend, Bobby Gulley, told police that he hid the cash in an old medicine bag with morphine and oxycodone pills.

One day the cash was gone, and Black was throwing up pills.

“He then asked her where the money was, and she admitted to him she’d wrapped it up and stuck it in her rectum,” Times News quotes Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Allen’s report.

“Black admitted (to Allen) to taking the money and medication because Mr Gulley was going to kick her out and she needed money for a place to live,” according to Allen’s report.

She tried to get the money out with tongs and a toilet brush, but nothing worked.

She had to be taken to the hospital for severe bleeding.

The money was removed and collected as evidence.
