Police say man used young teen to sell drugs on social media

SCOTTSDALE, AZ - Parents know how important it is to monitor their kids' social media sites, but checking the more obvious ones like Facebook and Twitter isn't enough anymore.

Scottsdale police said a mom was scoping out her kid's Instagram page when she found a picture posted by another 14-year-old.

"It appeared as though it was these capsules on display and the caption under it was, 'Who wants some,'" said Scottsdale police Sgt. Mark Clark.

Police said those capsules were MDMA, or Molly, and the person pushing that girl to sell the pills was 20-year-old Michael Davis. When he was arrested, police say he had over 50 of the pills in his pocket.

Davis is being charged with several drug related crimes, including using a minor in a drug offense.
