According to a criminal complaint, members of the Washington County Narcotics Task Force received information in December 2011 that Ennis had been selling and distributing marijuana and other drugs to people in the Woodbury area.

A confidential informant working with officers confirmed having bought marijuana from Ennis in the past. That informant then bought $350 worth of pot from Ennis. On March 20, members of the task force executed a search warrant at Ennis' Timberlea Drive home, where he was found in possession of drug paraphernalia, digital scales, mason jars filled with pot and a shot glass containing black tar heroin.
