OCALA, Fla. (AP) – Authorities say they’ve arrested two people who were running a drug business out of a mobile home with its own walk-up and drive-thru window.
An Ocala police news release says 20-year-old McKenzee Dobbs and 32-year-old William Parrish Jr. were arrested last week following several overdoses connected to the house. Both face multiple charges related to the possession and sale of fentanyl, a powerful opioid painkiller.
Police say officers collected drugs, paraphernalia and cash while executing a search warrant at the home Aug. 24. Investigators determined that Dobbs and Parrish had been selling drugs through a kitchen window.
Police say they’ve recorded 98 drug overdoses this year within Ocala city limits, and 13 were fatal. Police were working to determine if any fatal overdoses were connected to the mobile home.
