In 2009, Sebastien Salzmann was ranked as the 12th best tennis recruit in Florida with an intent to play at UCF. Four years later, agents say Salzmann was caught trying to purchase a massive quantity of the ‘Molly’ drug by the Drug Enforcement Association.
According to the complaint, Salzmann was caught by U.S. marshals on Monday with intent to buy over a kilogram of the party drug ‘Molly’.

Federal agents set up an informant to negotiate the terms of buying the drug. Salzmann had the intent to have the kilo of molly shipped to a friend’s duplex near campus while he was in Arizona, according to the complaint.
According to the complaint, the undercover informant would get $10,000 from the buyer, and then pay Salzmann anywhere from $6,000 to $7,000 for the kilogram of Molly. The undercover informant would then keep the difference in return for brokering the deal.
Molly is a drug similar to Ectasy, which has recently gained popularity among college students, most notably in the Electronic Dance Music scene. It had an emergency ban placed on it in 2011 by Attorney General Pam Bondi.
According to WFTV, Salzmann was on the UCF tennis team in 2009 and was currently playing on the UCF club team. He is now out on $50,000 dollars bond. See the full WFTV story below.
