A fugitive with a cellphone gave away her hiding place when deputies intercepted her texts leading them right to her perch underneath a sink.The woman, Mary Tiffany Nunley, 29, is charged with evading arrest for her attempt to elude officers who came to arrest her for failing to show up for court after she allegedly tried to falsify a drug test.According to sheriff’s deputy Billy Joe Crouch, lawmen were pretty sure they were at the right house on Old Post Road to serve the warrant on Nunley.“I saw the front and storm doors open and shut,” Crouch said he observed when he arrived, noting no one answered when he knocked on the door.It was while deputies were surrounding the house the resident of the house showed up and it was revealed to officers Nunley had been texting her from inside her house. Upon checking her phone, Crouch said he found texts from Nunley.“The texts said, ‘The cop are here don’t come here,’” Crouch recalled, writing the text in the warrant in short hand text language like appeared on the phone. “im hideing under the sink in ur bathroom, tel them that u havent seen me they wil proably say they seen me at the door.”Officers would later find Nunley had been texting someone named “Bake” asking the person to help her get away.“I’m gona go thru the back yard, get me,” the text read.When officers gained entry into the house they found Nunley exactly where she said she was, that being, underneath the bathroom sink. However, as she was getting out of her hiding place, lawmen say her foot hit a pipe under the sink.“As she was getting out, her foot hit the water line causing the house to flood with water,” Crouch noted.Nunley will face a hearing on all her charges before Judge Bill Locke in General Sessions Court.
