FORT PIERCE, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a Florida woman is blaming a windy day for the cocaine that police found in her purse.
WPLG reported Kennecia Posey was one of two passengers in a car stopped by Fort Pierce police in late March. Police say an officer smelled marijuana and that, after searching the car, cocaine and marijuana in separate bags were found inside a purse Posey had on her lap.
Authorities say they questioned Posey about the drugs. According to the police report, Posey responded: "It's a windy day. It must have flown through the window and into my purse."
Posey was charged with a felony count of cocaine possession and a misdemeanor count of marijuana possession. She was later released on bond.
It wasn't immediately known if she has a lawyer.
"I guess that's, why they call it blow!" - every hack (myself excluded) on twitter.
This story is getting a lot of attention, mainly due to the absurd nature to the story and I am falling right into the trap but I do not care. I love this story and honestly think Ms. Posey should have all the charges dropped.
In the story it clearly states that the car smelled of marijuana. That makes the weed they found in her purse make a lot of sense. We're all good so far.
When asked about the cocaine Kennecia Posey was extremely quick on her feet, and sure you could say that's because she was lying, and also possibly on cocaine, but I chose to not think that way. I think she came up with such a ridiculous claim because she's telling the truth.
Think about it for a second.
If she was lying about the coke wouldn't she have said that's where the weed came from too? If this is gonna be the horse you hitch yourself to might as well go down guns a blazing (not literally, don't shoot cops). You might as well go all in and use this fantastic remix of the dog ate my homework in attempts to beat the weed charge too. Cause if she's lying why not just try to say the wind blew the weed into her purse? Or the odor too while we're at it? If anything that'd be more believable. We all know how wind works. Smells travel. If you've ever farted in public you're likely wishing it was windier to help get rid of the evidence and not ruin your 2nd date. If anything it's more logical that a smell was blown in than a bag of nose beers.
I'm just saying if she was lying why not cover all your tracks? It's like if you were arrested for kidnapping and stealing a car and instead of denying it all just said the kid was already there when you stole the car once the cops show up.
But that wasn't the case.
Kennecia was likely smoking weed with the other passenger and was honest about that. That's why she didn't cover her tracks with something as ridiculous as "the wind blew it in". It was obvious that it wasn't.
The wind blew it in is such a ridiculous lie that it almost makes me believe it. Either Kennecia has wit of George Carlin or is telling the truth to be that quick on her feet when asked about the cocaine. Makes me think this far-fetched story isn't as crazy as it seems. I'm on your side Kennecia, the wind blew it in!!!
