The Bay County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a local man in connection to the seizure of thousands of opiate pills—some believed to contain fentanyl?and cocaine found in a residence in Panama City.
On Sept. 27th, 2018, the Bay County Sheriff's Office Special Investigations Division served a search warrant at an apartment in Panama City.
