Benson Police didn’t expect to find five small children in a home during a drug bust this week. Marcus McNeil, 25, and his wife, Shanika McNeil, were charged with possession of cocaine and maintaining a home to distribute cocaine. Chapman “Champ” Dale Carroll, 23, who reportedly sold drugs to an undercover agent from the same address a day earlier, was also arrested on felony drug charges. Police found five children, ages one to 7, inside the suspect’s home in the Ridge Apartments. Police searched two vehicles parked outside and seized unknown white tablets, and a loaded handgun reported stolen in Dunn.
