A Florida couple who saw themselves as entrepreneurs were arrested after they reportedly installed a drive-thru window in their mobile home from which they could sell drugs. William Parrish Jr. and McKenzee Dobbs from Ocala were arrested by police during a raid that took place after four drug overdoses took place in the area, according to WFTV. The drugs in question were soon traced to the couple’s home and authorities wasted no time in getting the operation shut down.

- They used their kitchen window as a drive-thru. In order to avoid having their regular customers coming in and out of their home, Ocala Police say Parrish and Dobbs used the kitchen window as a drive-thru with signs directing people where to go.
- They even had official opening hours posted. Police say that in addition to directions for the drive-thru, there were also postings indicating when the couple’s drug business was open or closed.
- The couple had been lacing their heroin with fentanyl. “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.”
- Both Parrish and Dobbs were arrested and booked on multiple charges. Parrish, 32, was charged with keeping a dwelling used to sell drugs, possession of drugs with intent to sell, resisting arrest without violence, and driving under the influence, as per the Marion County Sheriff’s Office. Dobbs, 20, was charged with the same, minus the DUI.
