TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — The Tallahassee Police Department has seized more than $37,000 worth of molly and several guns off the streets after arresting a suspected drug trafficker in Tallahassee.

On Jan. 29, members of TPD’s Special Investigations Section, along with the Violent Crimes Response Team, conducted a search warrant in the 2500 block of Holton Street.

A search of a home there led police to find and seize more than 37 grams of Alpha-PVP (commonly referred to as Flakka or Molly) valued at over $37,000.

Additionally, police found more than two pounds of marijuana, a loaded AK-47 pistol, a semi-automatic handgun, assorted drug paraphernalia, and more than $500 in cash.

As a result of the search, 25-year-old Devin Daenard Brown Jr. was arrested on several charges related to drug trafficking.

"The illegal sale and use of drugs impact everyone and are often linked with more violent crimes," police wrote in a release sent Monday. "This operation exemplifies the positive outcome of proactive efforts to identify a problem, develop a plan, and make a concerted effort to rid public housing complexes of narcotics traffickers."
