A speeding ticket turned into an arrest for drug possession after a trooper spotted a rather 'inconspicuous' bag during a traffic stop.

Troopers with the Florida Highway Patrol stopped a vehicle on I-10 for speeding when they noticed the purse.

Troopers say inside they found methamphetamine, GHB, cocaine, MDMA and fentanyl.

Authorities didn't identify the owners of the purse.

The troopers thanked the Santa Rosa County Sheriff's Office for their help.
