A 29-year-old woman is facing drug charges after allegedly pulling a small amount of cocaine in a cellophane wrapper out of her bra, saying the deputy was “going to find it anyway.”
Nicole Kathleen Franklin was a passenger in a vehicle that was stopped for speeding on Oct. 7, according to the arrest report. When Okaloosa County Sheriff’s deputies checked her record, they found that she was on probation for 2013 drug charges.
Deputies asked for permission to search her purse, and she agreed, the report said. They found rolling papers in her purse, which she admitted she used to smoke marijuana occasionally.
The driver granted deputies permission to search the vehicle, according to the report. They found a gram of marijuana and two partially smoked marijuana cigarettes in a cigarette package and glass smoking device hidden in a tampon box.
Franklin admitted that the weed and pipe were hers and said she’d forgotten they were in the console, the report said. Before she was arrested, she reached into her bra and handed deputies the cocaine.
She is charged with possession of cocaine, possession of not more than 20 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
