Woman blames 'windy day' as reason why cocaine was in her purse

FORT PIERCE, FL - (WFLA) -- A Florida woman who was busted with cocaine last month told officers the wind must have blown it into her purse.

Kennecia Posey, 26, was one of two passengers in a car that was stopped by Fort Pierce police after it was seen swerving in the roadway on March 21.

When officers approached the vehicle, they detected the smell of marijuana coming from inside the car. Officers later found cocaine and marijuana inside Posey's purse.

According to police, Posey admitted the marijuana was hers, but denied having any cocaine.

“I don’t know anything about any cocaine. It’s a windy day, it must have flown through the window and into my purse,” Posey said, according to police.

She was arrested and booked into the county jail.
