FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. -

Fayetteville police found dozens of weapons in a home after a 21-year-old woman gave three juveniles an unknown narcotic-related substance that sent the juveniles to the hospital.

Officers responded to a residence in the 5100 block of Hewitt Drive after three juveniles were taken to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center after taking the unknown substance, police said.

A police investigation showed Ashley Elizabeth Skaggs-Smith, 21, of 425 Waterbury Drive in Fayetteville, gave the substance to the juveniles at the residence on Hewitt Drive early Aug. 14.

Police said the juveniles started going through “medical distress” as soon as they ingested the substance.

All three are listed in stable condition, police said.

The North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation's Laboratory for analysis is examining the substance taken by the juveniles.

Fayetteville police said four of the weapons were stolen and a shotgun was altered and is classified as a weapon of mass destruction.

Skaggs-Smith faces three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, authorities said. She has been released from custody, police said.

Following the execution of the search warrant, police charged Boyce Jeff Sizemore, 51, of 425 Waterbury Drive, with possession with intent to sell/deliver MDMA, maintaining a dwelling for possession with intent to sell/distribute MDMA, possession of stolen firearms, possession of a weapon of mass destruction and misdemeanor child abuse.
