A Florida elementary school teacher was busted after deputies allegedly found a slew of drugs in the car she was in.

Kimberlyn Witt, 48, was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine, possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to an arrest report obtained by HuffPost Crime.

Witt and fellow passenger Martyn Dennis, 61, were pulled over in Fern Park on Tuesday after deputies said they smelled marijuana coming from their car as it passed.

The arrest report said deputies found cocaine, marijuana and amphetamine pills inside Witt's purse.

She also admitted to deputies she had more cocaine in her bra, according to the report.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that Seminole County Superintendent Walt Griffin said he would recommend that Witt, a third-grade teacher at Lake Mary Elementary, be suspended without pay.
