Mistaken 9-1-1 Call Results in Panhandle Drug Arrest

Investigators found one of Bay County's largest methamphetamine laboratories when a woman accidentally dialed 9-1-1 and hangs up.

Deputies say 43-year-old Vicki Lynn Nunnery told them she hung up the phone after realizing she had inadvertently dialed 9-1-1while trying to reach her mother. She was unaware that it is standard procedure for police to send an officer to investigate all 9-1-1 disconnections.

The investigating deputy smelled the distinct odor of meth while talking with Nunnery and 44-year-old Vito James Knowles.

The two were charged with trafficking meth. They face additional drug and weapon charges. Both remain at the Bay County Jail in Panama City.
