Sandra Wright

A woman who claimed to be two-months pregnant was arrested on charges of cocaine possession and drug paraphernalia, the Clewiston Police Department reported.

Sandra Wright, 29, was arrested on May 22 after police found two small bags of cocaine, glass pipes and other paraphernalia in her purse, according to an arrest reported released by Clewiston police.

Police were called to a residence in the Royal Palm Mobile Home Park on Ventura Avenue where a man said Wright was repeatedly banging on his front door asking for money.

The man said Wright was his girlfriend and that she was asking for money because she was allegedly two months pregnant with his unborn child.

Police questioned Wright, who was reportedly on inmate release status for narcotics, and searched her belongings, as well.

In her purse, police found two small bags of cocaine, two broken glass pipes, one intact glass pipe, 20 lighters, four metal rods, five steel wool balls, four thread spools and a rubber object with teeth marks, according to the report.

Wright was arrested and charged with one count possession of cocaine and three counts drug paraphernalia. She is currently being held in the Hendry County Jail on an $8,000 bond.
