If only she didn’t have such heavily tinted windows.

On Monday, Vivana Maria Carcasses was driving on Florida’s Turnpike north of Okeechobee Road in Fort Pierce, and a Florida Highway Patrol trooper didn’t like the look of the “dark window tint” of the white car driving past.

Carcasses was pulled over and, according to the arrest affidavit, a strong smell of “raw marijuana” was emanating from the vehicle.

A quick check found an ounce of marijuana in a condom in the Ocala woman’s purse, as well as an electronic cigarette with hash oil and another small bag of pot.

When a trooper checked the trunk, he uncovered a shoe box containing two bricks of cocaine wrapped in aluminum foil.

In a garbage bag, he found a bag with reddish powder, which turned out to be club drug MDMA, aka Ecstasy/Molly.

The trooper pulled out his scale to weigh the illegal substances. The MDMA was 430 grams, marijuana, 36 grams, and hash, five grams.

As for the cocaine found in the trunk, the trooper, W.M. Shogran, was unable to weigh it because the cocaine “was to(o) heavy for my scale,” according to the arrest report. Lt. Alvaro A. Feola, FHP spokesman, later said the coke weighed in at 5.6 pounds.

The report states Carcasses began to feel ill during the onsite investigation, and Fire Rescue arrived to check her out.

The 28-year-old was found to be well enough to be arrested on at least 10 drug-related charges, including cocaine trafficking and MDMA trafficking. Carcasses was released Tuesday from St. Lucie County Jail on $249,000 bail, reports USA Today.
