ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WIVB) - News 4 recently reported that use of the illegal drug known as "Molly" isn't prevalent in WNY, and it's clear federal authorities are working to keep it that way.
On Monday, the U.S. Attorney's Office announced eight people in Rochester were arrested for importing and distributing significant quantities of "Molly" from China. "Molly" is a purer form of the drug found in ecstacy, though experts say that does not mean it is safer, as some users believe, as the drug often comes from overseas from labs that are not sterile.
The eight facing charges are: Joshua Buerman, 25; Michele Hess, 21; Kevin Willard, 21; Andrew Bosch, 28; Madhu Ashok, 21; Lance Minielly, 23; Jesse James Macaveny, 20; and Rita Levy Panzica, 18.
The U.S. Attorney's Office says these eight conspired to bring in large quantities of the drug into WNY from China.
As part of this sting, 54 other people were arrested nationwide after being tied to the Chinese supplier, including in Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, Tennessee, Missouri, Ohio, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, Oregon, California and Texas.
