Shannalee Ferguson, a 31-year-old resident of a Central Village address, pleaded guilty to the charges of possession of ganja, dealing in ganja, taking steps to export ganja when she appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court.

She was remanded into custody for sentencing and a fingerprint order made.

The woman was held recently with two and a half pounds of the weed in her vagina.
