Four suspects, including an active service member of the Air Force, have been charged with offenses discovered during a Fayetteville Police Department investigation of an illegal liquor operation at a home.

During the probe, police officers and law enforcement agents with the Cumberland County Alcoholic Beverage Control located a fully operational bar in a home on the 1200 block of Bromley Drive in the Summerhill East subdivision with pool tables and a dance area, a news release said Saturday. Authorities seized liquor, beer, narcotics and drug paraphernalia. Officials also seized currency and credit card processing equipment that was associated with the operation.

Donovan, 28, has been charged with misdemeanor maintaining a dwelling for narcotics. Silvia Ciciliot, 31, has been charged with misdemeanor maintaining a dwelling for narcotics. Rachel Heath, 29, has been charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.
