Florida woman caught with cocaine in purse blames it on windy day

A 26-year-old woman in Florida claimed that "a windy day" was the reason why cocaine was in her bag, WPLG reported Friday.

Fort Pierce authorities stopped a swerving car in late March and questioned passenger Kennecia Posey, the station explained.

Police said an officer smelled marijuana, and while going through the car, marijuana and cocaine were discovered in bags in Posey's purse, WPLG added.
