Florida Couple Installs Drive-Thru Window for Drug Sales
OCALA, Fla. – A Florida man and woman were arrested last week after they were caught selling drugs out of a drive-thru window they constructed and attached to their mobile home. William Parrish Jr. and McKenzee Dobbs were taken into custody on August 23 after investigators raided their trailer following reports of four drug overdoses in the area.
Police said the pair had turned a kitchen window into a drive-thru so customers would not have to constantly enter and exit their home, attracting unwanted attention. There were signs directing people where to drive and indicating whether the dispensary was open or closed. “We were seeing some overdose incidents that were happening in this particular area, specifically at this particular location,” said Ocala Police Capt. Steven Cuppy. “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.”
Parrish, 32, was charged with driving under the influence, keeping a dwelling used to sell drugs, possession of drugs with intent to sell and resisting arrest without violence, according to Marion County Sheriff’s Office inmate records.
Dobbs, 20, has been charged with keeping a dwelling used to sell drugs, possession of drugs with intent to sell, possession of Fentanyl and possession of Fentanyl with intent to sell.
William Parrish Sr. told WFTV his son had been “trying to get himself straightened out” and maintained reports of overdoses were a “lie.”
Ocala is located approximately 80 miles northwest of Orlando.
