Mobile police shut down a local convenience store and arrested two men Sept. 4 for allegedly selling methadone from the location.
According to officials, the Mobile Police Narcotics Unit executed a search warrant at Unique Beer and Wine Convenience Store at 1957 West Prichard Ave. where police said 60-year-old Mack McMillian and 56-year-old Rick McMillian were illegally selling the narcotic drug methadone.
Police said their investigation revealed the two men sold methadone, in addition to other narcotics, to area individuals for illegal, street-level distribution and use.
“The Mobile Police Department will continue to be diligent in shutting down businesses who continue to sell illegal drugs in the community,” Mobile Police Chief James Barber said in a statement. “We will continue to maintain zero tolerance until the issue is eradicated.”
Mack McMillian was charged with seven counts of distribution of a controlled substance and Rick McMillian was charged with two counts of distribution of a controlled substance, according to MPD spokeswoman Ashley Rains.
According to records from the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office, both men have extensive arrest histories, including previous drug offenses, dating back to the 1980s.
