ALE Raids Fayetteville Drug and Alcohol Party

N.C. Alcohol Law Enforcement special agents, Fayetteville police officers and Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office K-9 unit deputies are continuing their investigation of a drug and alcohol “house party” at 973 Jet Circle, Fayetteville, on March 6. Agents obtained a search warrant that evening and charged 19 people with various drug and alcohol charges. An additional charge may be made.

Agents seized cocaine, marijuana, drug paraphernalia and a stolen gun, and arrested one fugitive of justice inside the residence. About 75 people were inside the residence at the time of the raid according to ALE agents.

Among those present and charged were resident Sharon Dobbin Hill, 49, and her two children, Eddie Joe Drye, 26, and Keyshanda Drye, 17. Hill was charged with nine counts of aiding and abetting underage persons in the possession of alcohol. Agents charged her children with multiple drug felonies including possession with intent to sell and deliver cocaine, possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana, possessing drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana.

“We found persons as young as 15 inside the residence who were intoxicated, and drugs were discovered in almost every room of the residence,” said Assistant Special Agent in Charge Jason Locklear. “This was a very dangerous situation for the party goers, with adult males, intoxicated 15- and 16-year-old females, drugs, alcohol, fugitives of justice and stolen guns.

“House parties are now being used as mobile nightclubs and we are seeing a serious increase in violence at house parties and illegal nightclubs,” Locklear said.
