Barbershop Operator Accused Of Using Business To Sell Drugs

Stancil’s Barbershop, on Highway 222 West, sits yards away from two churches. At the business, the Johnston County Sheriff’s Office says, you could get more than just a haircut. Antonio Cyntel “AC” Stancil, 27, of Kenly is accused of selling cocaine and marijuana out of the barbershop. Sheriff’s Captain A.C. Fish said residents had been complaining for years about illegal activity at Stancil’s Barbershop on Highway 222 west of NC42, near Stancil’s Chapel. Drug agents were finally able to get enough evidence for a judge to sign a search warrant on Wednesday. Authorities said they found a pound of marijuana hidden behind the barbershop, and additional marijuana and cocaine concealed under brick pavers in front of the rural business. Inside, Captain Fish said agents found digital scales, money, a handgun and assault rifle. Several pit bull dogs were found at the property, including one animal that was dead. At least one of the dogs was showing signs of neglect, Captain Fish said. Stancil was charged with two counts of possession of controlled substances, possession of drug paraphernalia, and cruelty to animals. Bond was set at $103,500.
