TOPSHAM — A 24-year-old New Hampshire man was arrested Feb. 20 at the Topsham Fair Mall after drug agents said he delivered about $12,000 worth of cocaine and MDMA, the drug known as Molly, to an undercover officer from the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency.

Ryan Thornton, of Dover, New Hampshire, was charged with unlawful trafficking in cocaine and unlawful trafficking in MDMA, both Class B felonies.

Molly is the street name for a drug that is pushed as the pure powder form of MDMA, a banned substance, according to Reuters. It is the main chemical in ecstasy, a psychoactive drug.

Thornton was taken to Two Bridges Regional Jail in Wiscasset and held on $1,500 cash bail.
