Elizabeth Espinoza of Ruskin was charged with two counts of cocaine possession, one count of cocaine trafficking, and one count of public order crimes, according to Sumter County arrest records.

Troopers said the driver was 27-year-old Elizabeth Espinoza of Ruskin. Her nervousness prompted them to bring in the dog, which alerted them to possible drugs inside. That gave them the probable cause needed to allow them to search the car, troopers said.

Inside, troopers said they found cocaine “hidden within the dashboard and other voids within the vehicle,” a news release states.

Elizabeth is accused of possessing 12 kilos of cocaine in her red 2016 Dodge Journey, worth more than $1,2 million, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

Florida Highway Patrol troopers noticed the woman seemed nervous after they pulled her over on Interstate 75 on Tuesday because her windows were illegally tinted.

So nervous, in fact, that troopers summoned a drug-detecting dog, which alerted troopers that drugs were inside the car.

The result was the arrest of a Ruskin woman on a cocaine trafficking charge and the seizure of about 26½ pounds of the drug — which troopers said is worth about $1.2 million.
