SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – A popular but extremely dangerous drug known as "molly" has landed a Scottsdale man in jail.

Scottsdale police said the suspect wasn't directly selling it. Instead, he was having a teenage girl do it for him through social media.

Michael Davis, 20, faces charges including possession for sale of dangerous drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia and use of a minor in a drug offense.

According to police, on Sept. 19, a school resource officer became aware that a 14-year-old female student was using social media to try and sell capsules of molly, a pure form of ecstasy.

The officer interviewed the girl and learned that she was directed by a man to help him package and distribute the powdered drug.

The officer's information was forwarded to narcotics detectives and they identified Davis as the potential suspect.

Police executed a search warrant at his home near Scottsdale and Cactus roads.

Davis was arrested with more than 50 molly pills in his pocket, according to police. Additional pills, paraphernalia and packaging materials were found inside his home.
