PUTNAM COUNTY, Fla. -- A 56-year-old woman was busted during a traffic stop for allegedly possessing crack.

Tressa Wade was allegedly observed by Putnam County Sheriff's Deputies speeding and crossing the center line late Tuesday night, according to a Facebook post by the Putnam County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies pulled over the 56-year-old and claim she, "quickly jumped out of her vehicle and was acting erratically," according to the post.

Once Wade was back in her car, she allegedly appeared to be shaky and wasn't making sense when speaking, the post detailed.

The post said Wade then allegedly began grabbing for her purse, refusing to listen to deputies to keep her hands on the steering wheel.

A search of Wade's vehicle allegedly turned up crack cocaine and drug paraphernalia, according to the post.

Wade was taken into custody and is facing charges for possession of cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia and resisting law enforcement.
