Florida police arrested a couple for allegedly selling drugs out of a drive-thru window they'd installed in a mobile home.
Police arrested William Parrish Jr, 32, and McKenzee Dobbs, 20, of Ocala, Florida, on August 23 following a raid of their mobile home.
Authorities said that the pair had turned a kitchen window into a drive-thru window that they sold drugs — including fentanyl-laced heroin — through, in an effort to avoid drawing attention to themselves by having a constant stream of customers enter and then exit the mobile home, WFTV reported.

Authorities said the couple installed a drive-thru window in the mobile home's kitchen. Police said they posted a sign (visible in the window) indicating whether they were open for business
Ocala Police Department investigators said that the pair had posted signs in the windows of the home advising whether they were open or closed for business and telling drivers where to go.
Authorities said that they became aware of Parrish and Dobbs after noting four overdoses in the particular area where the couple were allegedly operating.
Their arrest affidavit stated that on August 9, an undercover Unified Drug Enforcement Strike Team officer went to the mobile home and that Dobbs allegedly sold the officer drugs there. The apparent deal was caught by surveillance equipment, according to the Miami Herald.
Authorities then raided the mobile home two weeks later.

Parrish's father said that he did not know that any drug dealing was taking place at the mobile home and said that Parrish was going to a methadone clinic to 'get himself straightened out'
Parrish's father, William Sr., told WFTV that his son was supposedly 'trying to get himself straightened out' by going to a methadone clinic.
He denied having any knowledge of the alleged drug dealing occurring at the mobile home and said that reports of overdoses were 'a lie.'
Parrish and Dobbs both face six charges each.
Both are charged with keeping or maintaining a dwelling used to keep/sell drugs, possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell - fentanyl and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Parrish also faces charges of resisting arrest, as well as probation violations of being a felon in possession of a firearm or ammunition and driving under the influence.
Dobbs, meanwhile, also faces fentanyl-related charges of introduction of contraband into a receiving facility, sale of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance.
They are both still in jail with bond amounts for each charge ranging from $1,000 to $10,000, according to Marion County Sheriff's Office inmate records.
