Wind can do amazing things. Without wind, kites would be incredibly boring. The kinetic energy from wind can be harnessed to create virtually unlimited power. And, if one woman is to be believed, wind can even blow bags of drugs in through your open car window and straight into your purse.
“A Florida woman, 26, tried to get out of being found with cocaine in her purse by telling police she had no idea where it came from and that it must have blown in through the window,” The Daily Mail reports.
When police in Fort Pierce smelled marijuana coming from inside a car, they pulled it over. The passenger, Kennecia Posey, was behaving suspiciously, so the police searched the vehicle.
The found marijuana. They also found a bag of cocaine in Posey’s purse. The police report that she owned up to the pot, several times, but denied knowing anything about the cocaine.
She couldn’t explain how that had gotten there, but she was willing to take a guess. “I don’t know anything about any cocaine,” she said. “It’s a windy day. It must have flown through the window and into my purse.”
It must have. Stranger things have happened. Back in 1939, a small girl from Kansas was reportedly ripped from a sepia-toned Kansas and hurled into technicolor cinematic history. In 2013, carcharodon carcharias specimens were deposited by cyclonic rotation into downtown Los Angeles. But bagged cocaine landing in purses?
The authorities on scene were unwilling to suspend their disbelief and arrested Posey on one felony count of cocaine possession and a misdemeanor count of marijuana possession.
Posey was later released on bond.
