Police make $3 million Molly bust in Clayton Co.



Police serving a warrant at a house in Clayton County made a major bust Thursday night, finding more than $3 million in the drug known as Molly.

The drug is a mix of Ecstasy and methamphetamine.

Police said someone tipped them off that several people were selling the drug from the house. Dozens of undercover narcotics detectives served a drug warrant at the home.

Investigators said the person inside the home on Monterey Drive had 49.1 lbs  of Molly in a large piece of luggage.

"It's uncut. But, by the time it hits the street it has a street value of approximately $3 million," said Maj. Alan Holloway with the Clayton County Police Department.

Officers arrested two men at the home.

"$3 million dollars worth of drugs is very significant. Significant in Clayton County, significant in the metro area, significant in the state," Clayton County Police Chief Greg Porter said

Police also recovered a large stash of guns.

"Those guns will be off the streets and out of the people who were planning to harm you and your family and police officers," Porter said.
