A “pregnant” woman in South Carolina was arrested after three pounds of cocaine fell from a rubber belly she had allegedly taped to herself, according to authorities.

On April 12, deputies pulled over Anthony Miller and Cemeka Mitchem during a “proactive patrol,” the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office said.

Public Information Officer Shale Remien said the stop was predicated on Miller’s erratic driving, ABC News reported.

Miller reportedly was weaving through multiple lanes and almost collided with a semi-trailer truck.

During the traffic stop, police said Miller and Mitchem were both behaving nervously. They volunteered that Mitchem was pregnant, ABC News reported.

As officers talked to the couple, they noticed the two started providing conflicting information about Mitchem’s due date, police said.

The two also offered different information to police about their destination, Remien said.

As police grew increasingly suspicious of the “conflicting story” being told by the couple, Mitchem fled from police, according to officials.

Officials said, “Mitchem immediately took off running and very quickly drugs fell from the fake rubber stomach.”

Deputies claim they also found marijuana in the vehicle.

Mitchem and Miller were arrested and charged with drug trafficking for the 1,500 grams of cocaine officers retrieved from the stop, according to police. They remain incarcerated in Anderson County, officials said.

"It's not every day we see something like that," Remien noted.
