A Florida woman reportedly told cops that a windy day was the reason law enforcement officers found illegal drugs in her purse.

According to a report by WPLG-TV, Fort Pierce cops pulled over Kennecia Posey, 26, in late March for a reported driving infraction.

After noting that Posey's vehicle was swerving, cops pulled the car over and reportedly smelled marijuana inside.

During a search of the vehicle, officers discovered cocaine and marijuana bagged separately inside Posey's purse, which was resting on her lap.

When questioned about the drugs, Posey reportedly told officers that the marijuana belonged to her, but that the wind must have blown cocaine through the window and into her bag.

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

Posey was arrested was booked at the St. Lucie County jail on one felony count of cocaine possession and a misdemeanor count of marijuana possession.

Posey was released on bond. According to WPTV-TV, it was not immediately clear if Posey had a lawyer.
