WILMINGTON, N.C. — New Hanover County deputies said they arrested two adults after finding them with two teenagers under the influence of an hallucinogenic drug.

Sgt. J.J. Brewer said a deputy on patrol noticed the four at Fort Fisher State Park and thought they were arguing. Once he reached them, the deputy said they were hallucinating.

Authorities said 28-year-old Raynond Joseph Jones and 35-year-old Melissa Carin Creekmore had ingested the synthetic drug 2C-I, and had also given it to Creekmore’s 16-year-old daughter and her 15-year-old friend.

Jones and Creekmore are jailed on charges of felony child abuse and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. It’s not known if either have an attorney.

Creekmore’s daughter is in DSS custody, while the daughter’s friend was released to her mother.
