Drug traffickers allegedly used a fake pregnancy belly to smuggle 1,500 grams of cocaine in South Carolina. The duo, Anthony Miller and Cemeka Mitchem was reportedly pulled over while driving on Interstate 85 in South Carolina. According to the New York Times, "Police said red flags were then raised when the officers asked about the apparent pregnant woman's due date and the two suspects provided "conflicting information." After realizing that the authorities were on to them, Cemeka supposedly attempted to escape and took off running when the cocaine fell out of the fake belly she was wearing.
