A female drug smuggler needed doctors to remove a package of heroin from her vagina after she and two accomplices were busted in Arizona, authorities said.

Miranda Baldonado, 19, was briefly hospitalized for the procedure following a surprising car stop in Yavapai County.

She and 19-year-old Sarah Valencia were riding in a Chrysler PT Cruiser driven by convicted drug trafficker Michael Torrez, authorities said.

A sheriff’s deputy stopped the trio from New Mexico on Monday and quickly grew suspicious.

“They were unable to answer basic questions that a group of passengers sharing a destination would commonly know,” according to a statement from the sheriff’s office.

The deputy walked a drug-sniffing K-9 around the car, and the dog focused on the rear hatch where a pound of heroin, wrapped in condoms, was hidden, authorities said.

The deputy soon learned Baldonado and Valencia had hidden additional drugs inside their “private area” as they were pulled over, according to the sheriff’s report.

Michael Torrez, 29, was on parole for a drug conviction when a Yavapai County, Ariz., sheriff’s deputy busted him and two others with more than a pound of heroin, authorities say.

Drug smugglers Michael Torrez (l) and Sarah Valencia (r) and an accomplice were busted with more than a pound of heroin during a traffic stop in Yavapai, Ariz., authorities say.

Valencia was able to remove her package without help, authorities said.

Deputies recovered more than a pound and a half of heroin in total.

Torrez, 29, was on parole in New Mexico for a drug conviction.

The three were charged with multiple felonies, including possession and transportation of narcotics for sale.

Baldonado and Valencia were also charged with evidence tampering.

Torrez was jailed on $180,000 bond. A judge set bond on the two teens at $150,0000.
