Police in Middletown, Conn., have arrested four Wesleyan students in connection with a mass MDMA overdose over the weekend involving a bad batch of “molly” that left 12 people hospitalized.
The four students are reportedly in police custody and authorities are collecting evidence related to the incident.
“We take very seriously allegations concerning the distribution of dangerous drugs, and the university will continue to cooperate with state and local officials,” said Michael Roth, Wesleyan’s president, in a statement released Tuesday night.
School officials also announced that only two Wesleyan students are still being treated at a hospital in nearby Hartford.
Molly is the street name for MDMA, colloquially known as ecstasy, that is thought to be unusually pure and normally consumed in capsule form.
