Florida Woman Tells Cops That Wind Blew Cocaine Into Her Purse

"I don't know anything about any cocaine, it's a windy day," she said.

 She blew it.

A Florida woman caught with cocaine in her purse told police that the wind must have blown it there — an explanation that failed to keep her from a felony charge.

Kennecia Posey, 26, was one of three passengers in a car pulled over in March by Fort Pierce police, according to a police report obtained by Oxygen. The car had been "swerving in the roadway and failing to maintain its lane," the report said.

An oficer who approached the vehicle said he smelled marijuana. He found Posey setting in the front passenger seat with a purse in her lap.

Police searched the car and its four occupants, including Kennecia and her purse, the report says.

In the purse, police found "0.5 grams of cocaine in a small clear bag and 4.2 grams of marijuana in seperate small bags."

Posey admitted to possessing weed, but not coke. She blamed that on the wind.

"I don't know anything about any cocaine, it's a windy day, it must have flown through the window and into my purse," she said, according to the report. 

Police field-tested the substances and confirmed they were illegal drugs, the report says.

Posey was charged with felony cocaine possession and misdemeanor marijuana possession, according to court records. She was released on bond, but is due back in court May 3 for an arraignment.

A telephone call to a number identified as Posey’s in the police report went unanswered, and a message left seeking comment was not returned. It is unclear if she has an attorney.
