Two people charged with drug trafficking in South Carolina after cocaine falls from fake pregnant belly: police

Two people have been arrested in South Carolina and charged with drug offenses after authorities discovered cocaine was hidden in a fake pregnancy belly one of the suspects was allegedly wearing.

According to the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office on Sunday, its Special Investigations Division and Directed Patrol Unit were conducting a “proactive patrol” along Interstate 85 last month when officers stopped Anthony Miller and Cemeka Mitchem.

The sheriff’s office said officers became suspicious when Miller and Mitchem gave conflicting information about Mitchem’s supposed due date.

Noticing that officers were becoming increasingly skeptical of her story, Mitchem attempted to run away, causing the drugs to fall out of the rubber belly.

Miller and Mitchem are both charged with trafficking more than 400 grams of cocaine. Prison records show the arrests took place on April 12.
