Town of Ithaca man arrested with “large quantity” of MDMA

A 19-year-old Town of Ithaca man was arrested on felony drug possession charges this week.

Just after 5 p.m. Thursday, an Ithaca Police officer responded to the area of North Willard Way, near the make-shift trail to Ithaca Falls, for a report of drug activity.

The IPD officer, along with two Cornell University officers, spoke to a group of people on the trail system. One of the individuals, 19-year-old Lucas Hahn, was found to be in possession with what police say was a “large quantity” of MDMA, also referred to as “Molly.”

Hahn remains in Tompkins County Jail without bail on felony drug charges.
