Hawkins County Sheriff's Department

A Tennessee woman is accused of stealing $5,000 from her boyfriend and hiding the money in her rear.

Christie M. Black, 43, of Bulls Gap had to be hospitalized for injuries she suffered while stuffing the cash in her "hiding place," Knoxville TV station WBIR reported.

Her boyfriend, 46-year-old Bobby Gulley, told police he suspected Black had been stealing from him, so he set a trap.

Gulley put two envelopes filled with $5,000 in cash inside a bag and left it on a foosball table in their home. He got up at around 1 a.m., founding the money missing and confronted Black, who eventually admitted to stuffing the money in her rectum, police told the Times News.

Black told responding officers she stole the money because Gulley was going to kick her out, and she needed to find another place to live, WBIR reported.

She said she tried to get the cash out "with a toilet brush and tongs," but to no avail, and had to be taken to a local hospital with severe bleeding.
