DEU arrests two men with mushrooms, hash, marijuana

GREENWOOD, SC – The Greenwood Drug Enforcement Unit (DEU) released information on Wednesday that they arrested two that they reportedly found in possession of more than four pounds of marijuana, more than 60 mushrooms typically used as a hallucinogenic and more than 160 grams of hashish.

According to a report from the Greenwood Police Department, which DEU officials say was held while they continued to investigate where the men obtained the drugs, police arrested Roy Carroll McKinney, 39, of 1699 Florida Avenue, and Willson Barlow Fisher, 25, of 612 Willard Road, after they located the two men sitting in a vehicle in front of an unoccupied residence at 154 Avondale Road on Dec. 18, 2012.

According to the report, when police first approached the vehicle and began speaking with McKinney and Fisher, they could smell a strong odor of marijuana coming from the two men. Both initially denied having smoked any marijuana, but eventually told police that they had some on their person.  A search of McKinney yielded two small bags with marijuana and a set of digital scales. A search of Fisher yielded a large ziplock bag of marijuana and a large ziplock bag of mushrooms in addition to more than $1,900 in cash.

When police first arrived they observed the two men walk out from under the carport at 152 Avondale Road were another vehicle was located. A search of that vehicle yielded a purple Crown Royal bag that contained a mason jar approximately one-third full of mushrooms. Fisher indicated that the mushrooms belonged to him.

When asked who lived at the residence, Fisher told police that it was his child’s mother’s house. Police went to the residence and obtained permission to search the residence from the woman. She told police that Fisher had come by the residence just before officers arrived with a large gym bag, which he placed in a closet in the back bedroom. The woman showed police where Fisher placed the bag. Inside the bag police found about four pounds of marijuana and more than 160 grams of hashish. They also located a .40 caliber handgun and a 30/30 rifle near the bag. Both weapons came back clear after a check of the NCIC system. Police also located a briefcase containing numerous glass smoking devices at the residence.

Fisher was charged with three counts of possession of controlled substance with intent to distribute and released on a personal recognizance bond. McKinney was charged with one count of possession of controlled substance with intent to distribute and released on a personal recognizance bond as well.

This has nothing to do with the mother. all of you saying she knew if she knew and she was a bad mother she prob would not have told. but bc she told i would say otherwise. and it is a good possiblity that she did think it was cloths. It isnt uncommon that people carry clothes in gym bags. were you there? do you know what he told her was in the bag? No. you people amaze me.

Im just wondering what the mother thought was in the gym bag. Clothes? She had to have known what was going on. I find it hard to believe someone would let their childs father bring a gym bag and place it in your closet...having no idea of what is in it. She knew!

Mr Fisher has been one of the main pushers in Greenwood for quite some time. Glad to see he got caught. And yes, his baby mamma was quite aware of what was going on. Since his release hes been bragging what a good lawyer he has, and will get out of it. Mr Stumbo, isn't it time to set an example?

Interesting that he was hiding all of this in his 'child's mother's house', but she wasn't charged in this situation..nor were charges filed against her for having it in her possession with her child living there? Interesting..
