OCALA, FL – Police in Florida have raided a drug house after four drug overdoses were linked to the location, according to the Ocala Police Department.
Police said William Parrish, Jr., and McKenzee Dobbs were selling drugs out of a mobile home on Northwest 23rd Place in Ocala. The suspects were arrested on August 23 on charges including drug possession, selling drugs, and keeping or maintaining a dwelling used to keep or sell drugs.
Investigators said the home had an actual drive-thru window, “Open” and “Closed” signs, and signs directing motorists where to drive.Police explained that the couple had transformed a kitchen window into a drive-thru so that they would not have customers regularly entering and exiting the home.
“We were seeing some overdose incidents that were happening in this particular area, specifically at this particular location,” Ocala police Captain Steven Cuppy said, according to WFTV 9.
“There [were] some heroin sales that were going on there. Subsequently, through the investigation, we were able to determine that product was laced with fentanyl.”
William Parrish, Sr., Parrish’s father, said his son had been visiting a methadone clinic and said that he was not aware of the alleged drug deals taking place at the home.
