    According to the police report, an officer approached the car and smelled an odor of marijuana coming from inside. During a search of the car, the officer found separate bags of marijuana and cocaine in separate bags in a purse Posey had in her lap, WPLG reported.

    Posey allegedly admitted the marijuana was hers, but said she did not know anything about the cocaine, according to the police report.

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

    Posey was booked into the St. Lucie County jail on one felony count of cocaine possession and a misdemeanor count of marijuana possession. She was later released on bond, WPLG reported.
