Congratulations! It’s a … bag of cocaine.
Two people were recently accused of trafficking more than 1,500 grams of cocaine through South Carolina after the drugs fell out of a fake pregnancy belly being worn by one of the alleged dealers.
The Anderson County Sheriff’s Office said deputies first pulled over Anthony Miller and Cemeka Mitchem during a “proactive patrol” on Interstate 85.
Police said red flags were then raised when the officers asked about the apparent pregnant woman’s due date and the two suspects provided “conflicting information.”
Deputies said that as they grew more suspicious, Mitchem realized the officers’ weren’t buying their story and immediately took off from the car.
The drugs Mitchem was hiding inside her fake rubber stomach fell out when she sprinted away, with officers catching her and the contraband.
The sheriff’s office estimated that the couple was hiding more than 1,500 grams of cocaine during the traffic stop.
Both Miller and Mitchem were arrested and are facing cocaine-trafficking charges.
Interstate 85 has been a popular route for drug traffickers through Anderson County, with several busts reported this year.
In February, police arrested a man who allegedly trafficked more than 400 grams of cocaine, with another bust in March seizing a record 108 pounds of coke, WYFF4 said.
Last month, Anderson County deputies also seized more than 48 pounds of drugs from another duo during a traffic stop on I-85.
