When asked what it was, Chambers opened her hand and said there was nothing there but several pieces of crack cocaine fell onto her lap.
While being searched, police found a crack pipe and a pill bottle hidden in her underwear as well as another crack pipe and several more crack rocks in her bra.
The pill bottle contained Buprenorphine and a search of her car turned up Oxycodone, neither of which she had a prescription for.

Effingham County sheriff's spokesman David Ehsanipoor said the pair is suspected of using methamphetamine around the time they called 911 for help.
Deputies responding around 4 a.m. to the home outside Savannah were told by the pair that people in a back bedroom had broken into the home, but no intruders were found.

Man scared of heights bungee jumps
A bungee jump in Dallas apparently arranged by a woman to help her future husband face his fear of heights turned into a three-hour ordeal 50 feet up when the cables got tangled.
Dallas firefighters used an aerial ladder truck to rescue William Mancera and Thalia Rodriguez of Irving.
Dallas Fire-Rescue Lt. Joel Lavender said Tuesday that neither was injured.
The couple, who plan to marry next year, seemed in good spirits after the incident and mentioned that Mancera has a fear of heights. Lavender says the ride was meant to be kind of a fun thing, as "a gift on her part, a challenge on his part."

Bride's Mugshot

Tammy Lee Hinton, 50 of Port Richey had just said "I Do" when officers swooped in and arrested her at the City of Zion Ministries church in Jackson, Mich.
The bride had been wanted for two years on a Michigan warrant for identity theft. The victim of the rip-off was her son, according to authorities.
Michigan authorities say Hinton racked up about $3,000 in utility bills in 2009 under the name of her son, Wesley Knauf, then 17. He discovered the debts when he applied for a credit card. Wesley searched through his mother's bills and found many with his name on it.
Hinton was booked Saturday at the Jackson County jail in her bridal attire. After posing bail she managed to make it back in time for part of her wedding reception. But Hinton was a no-show at her Monday arraignment.
