Oregon man sentenced for selling MDMA or ‘Molly’ at The Gorge

Columbia Basin Herald

EPHRATA – An Oregon man was sentenced to a year in prison after admitting to selling MDMA or “Molly” at The Gorge Amphitheatre in June during the Paradiso Festival.

Vincent Sproul, 22, pled guilty to delivery of a controlled substance charges after undercover police saw him sell a white powdery substance to numerous festivalgoers, according to the police report.

Sproul did not sell any of the drug to the undercover police. He said he was out of the substance when they tried to buy some, according to the police report. Another man told Sproul the undercover police were “the cops” and he should not sell to them, according to the police report.

Police also arrested Sproul’s girlfriend, who was present when the drugs were sold, and another man who bought the drug from Sproul, according to the police report. The man said he would testify against Sproul at a later court date.

Sproul had about an ounce of “Molly” on him when arrested. He said he sold about $700 of the drug throughout the day, according to the police report.

Sproul was convicted of possession of cocaine in 2013 and possession of MDMA in 2010, when he was a juvenile.
