A couple in Florida was taken into custody last month after they were busted allegedly selling drugs out of a makeshift drive-thru window they created on the side of their mobile home.

William Parrish Jr. and McKenzee Dobbs of Ocala, Florida, were arrested on August 23rd after authorities raided their mobile home after receiving reports of four drug overdoses in the area, according to WFTV.

Authorities in Ocala revealed that the couple had transformed a kitchen window into a drive-thru so patrons would not have to continually walk in and out of their home, potentially attracting unwanted attention.

The mobile home had signs showing people where to drive and showed whether it was open or closed.

“We were seeing overdose incidents that were happening in this area, specifically at this particular location,” Ocala Police Captain Steven Cuppy explained. “There [were] heroin sales that were going on there. Subsequently, we were able to determine that the product was laced with fentanyl.”

Parrish, 32, was charged with DUI, maintaining a dwelling used to distribute drugs, possession of drugs with intent to sell, and resisting arrest without violence, Marion County Sheriff’s Office inmate records revealed.

Dobbs, 20, was charged with maintaining a dwelling used to distribute drugs, possession of drugs with intent to sell, possession of fentanyl and possession of fentanyl with intent to distribute.

William Parrish Sr. told WFTV that his son was “trying to get himself straightened out” and contended that reports of overdoses were a “lie.”
