Several Pounds Of Synthetic Drug Seized In Greenville, Raleigh

Police say a two month investigation led them to a traffic stop and arrest in Greenville, along with a search in Raleigh where more than 5-1/2 pounds of a synthetic drug was found.

The Greenville Regional Drug Task Force and DEA made the stop at Arlington Boulevard and Stantonsburg Road last Wednesday. Police say inside Faisal Moghadass' vehicle they found more than a pound of "Molly", the synthetic drug, and two pounds of high grade marijuana.

The 21-year-old is charged with numerous trafficking MDPV and possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana charges.

The DEA and Raleigh police then searched his home on Isabella Cannon Road where they found 3-1/2 pounds of the synthetic drug and more marijuana.

Police say the street value for all of the "Molly", which is also known as ecstasy, is estimated at just over $200,000. They say the drugs were being transported to Greenville for distribution.

Moghadass is jailed under a $1.3 million bond.

The former Greenville resident was arrested back in 2012 by Greenville police on drug charges, as well as several arrests that year in Wake County as well.
