SCOTTSDALE, AZ (CBS5) -

Police say they've arrested a Scottsdale man who had a 14-year-old girl selling the drug, known as "molly," online for him.

The Scottsdale Police Department said a Scottsdale police resource officer learned the suspect had directed the student to use social media to sell the dangerous dug.

In an interview with police, the teen girl said she helped package and distribute the powdered drug.

On Sept. 19, police identified the suspect as 20-year-old Michael Davis and issued a search warrant at his home in the 7400 block of East Cortez Street.

Detectives found more than 50 molly pills in his pocket. More pills as well as paraphernalia and packaging materials were also found in the home, according to Scottsdale police.

He was arrested the same day and is being charged with possession for sale of dangerous drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia and use of a minor in a drug offense.
