Lawmen who responded to the scene found a small cylinder containing meth lying near the Honda Accord in which Nunley had been riding.“The cylinder was located in the tall weeds next to the vehicle in which he was a passenger,” reported Highway Patrolman Tony Myers.The trooper said he spoke with Nunley and the suspect was forthcoming about what had happened after the accident.“He said the meth was his and he admitted throwing it into the weeds after the crash to try to hide it,” Trooper Myers said.
