Man arrested after posting pics of drugs, guns, and money on Facebook

TOBYHANNA TOWNSHIP, Pa. - A Tobyhanna Township man was arrested Thursday after a Pocono Mountain Regional Police SWAT team raided his house in Greenwood Acres and found drugs, guns, and money.

Police say they became suspicious of Jhoan Molina, 26, of Blakeslee when they found his Facebook page and pictures of him with marijuana, guns, and money.

Police eventually recruited an informant to buy pot from Molina at his home which the informant did on several occasions, authorities say. Police were then able to obtain a search warrant.

During the raid, police say they found a loaded AR15, a loaded handgun, marijuana, nearly $500, and a digital scale.

Molina is charged with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, possession of instruments of a crime, criminal use of a communication facility, possession of controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
