SARASOTA, Fla., May 2 (UPI) -- Authorities in Florida said they pulled over a speeding vehicle and discovered two alleged drug dealers on their way to sell marijuana.

The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office said a deputy pulled over a vehicle driving 63 mph in a 45 mph zone around 1:20 a.m. April 12 and smelled the odor of burnt marijuana in the car, the Sarasota Herald-Tribune reported Wednesday.

Deputies said the driver, Kristi Dane Clark, 23, of Lakeland, was found to be concealing a .22-caliber handgun and three bags of marijuana in her bra. A search of the vehicle resulted in the discovery of more bags of marijuana.

Investigators said the Clark and her passenger, Michael James McCoy Jr., 22, were on their way to meet a pair of customers, who told deputies they had planned to purchase $200 worth of marijuana.

Clark was charged with carrying a concealed weapon, possession with intent to sell cannabis and possession of a firearm in the commission of a crime. McCoy was charged with possession with intent to sell cannabis.
