Getting caught with illicit drugs is never an ideal situation. In these instances, perpetrators must keep their heads on a swivel and have an alibi on hand. Unfortunately for some, staying on your toes isn’t necessarily second nature, especially if the crime is pretty cut and dry. Let’s say, getting caught with cocaine in your handbag, for example. There’s nothing that could really hide one’s guilt. But apparently, there’s at least one person was able to think of a reasonable excuse, as a Florida woman claims that wind blew cocaine into her purse.
Well, reasonable might be a bit of a stretch.
She Ain’t Got No Alibi
According to authorities, 26-year-old Kennecia Posey was arrested last month for drug possession, after police found marijuana and cocaine in her bag. The woman allegedly admitted the cannabis was hers, but as for the cocaine, Posey’s tune dramatically changed.The woman attributed the officer’s further findings to the windy weather of that day.
“I don’t know anything about any cocaine,” Kennecia Posey said, according to the WPLG local new. “It’s a windy day. It must have flown through the window and into my purse.”
On March 21st, Posey and another passenger were pulled over by Fort Pierce Police for swerving along the road. According to the official police report, the officers smelled marijuana, giving the police reasonable grounds to search the delinquent drivers.
The police then uncovered the cannabis and cocaine in two sperate bags within the confines of Posey’s purse, which was seated on her lap.
Despite her compelling plea, Posey was booked on one felony count of cocaine possession and a misdemeanor count of marijuana possession, before eventually getting released on bond.
It’s unclear whether or not the other passenger was charged.
Final Hit: Florida Woman Claims That Wind Blew Cocaine Into Her Purse
While Posey may deserve an “A for effort,” her excuse was, for all intents and purposes, absolutely ludicrous. It’s like the adult equivalent to the “my dog ate my homework” excuse, except, of course, she was talking about cocaine.
But in a world where we see a woman attempt to smuggle meth and weed into a jail with a bible, or a mother getting arrested for allowing her almost two-year-old daughter consume cannabis-infused mac and cheese, nothing is truly surprising at this point.
Our piece of advice? If you’ve managed to mess up this badly, at least just admit your wrongdoings from the outset, especially if your excuse is that juvenile. In the long run, things will probably work out a whole lot better.
At the very least, your mug shot won’t be posted all over the internet, forever linked with the worst alibi in human history.
