WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Jan. 2 (UPI) -- A Florida woman has been arrested for violating terms of her release in a 2012 incident in which she was caught speeding, naked from the waist up, police said.

Claudia Y. Salinas, 27, of West Palm Beach, was arrested Monday for allegedly violating the terms of her release after the Sept. 20, 2012, incident, the Palm Beach (Fla.) Post reported.

A Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office report of the 2012 incident said Salinas was clocked driving at 75 mph -- 25 mph over the posted speed limit. During the ensuing traffic stop, a deputy noticed that Salinas was not wearing a top and her car smelled of marijuana.

The deputy told Salinas to cover up and called a drug detection dog to the scene. The dog indicated there were drugs at the scene and deputies searched Salinas' car -- and deputies found powdered and crack cocaine, as well as more than $1,000 in cash in Salinas' car and arrested her on a trafficking charge.

Salinas was in custody at the Palm Beach County Jail late Tuesday in lieu of $75,000 bond.
