Plea deal for woman with pharmacy up vagina on hold

Bree-anne Alicia Buhler, 25, pleaded guilty to charges of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and possession of stolen property after an 'over the top' high speed police chase in the Okanagan. Buhler managed to avoid 3 spike belts during the extended chase, and the disintegration of a front tire barely slowed her down after a fourth.

Buhler was eventually arrested and 3.8 grams of heroin was found in the stolen truck. When she was being booked she began vomiting. At hospital, doctors found a pharmacy of heroin, meth and cocaine stashed in her vagina. A joint submission that would have amounted to 210 days in jail and 12 months probation was questioned by the judge, a rare circumstance.
“All of this is clearly dangerous … this is over the top aggravating circumstances” said the judge in response to defence submissions that the chase was "out in the boonies". The judge noted Buhler was on probation at the time. She was sentenced to 14 months in 2017 for a massive property-crime spree. The judge requested case law from the Crown and defence to support the 210 day joint submission, something neither had.

Buhler was in custody on other charges so the judge adjourned the sentencing to allow them to produce case law in support of the ridiculous deal.
