Around 1,100 doses of Ecstasy have been removed from the streets of Columbia after a cooperative effort between local and federal agencies.
Yesterday at approximately 2:24 p.m., detectives with the Columbia Police Department Vice Narcotics and Organized Crime (VNOC) Unit, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the East Central Drug Task Force, and the United States Postal Inspectors served a narcotics-related search warrant at 1503 Lowe Street. The search warrant came after a package addressed to Dylan Parham with the address of 1503 Lowe Street was found containing approximately 252.79 grams of Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA), commonly known as Ecstasy. Detectives made contact with Parham during service of the search warrant. During a search of the residence, detectives located a shotgun, the package of Ecstasy, and three Vyvanse capsules.
Parham was arrested for Trafficking in the Second Degree, Felony Possession of a Controlled Substance, and Felony Unlawful Use of a Weapon all with bonds to be set by the Court.
We'd like to recognize the excellent teamwork between all agencies involved. Efforts like this help make our community a safer, healthier place to live, work, and play.
