OVEIDO, Fla. (WFTV) -- A man police in Seminole County have been tracking for months on suspicion of selling drugs is behind bars Wednesday.

Police said they're trying to track down anyone who purchased the dangerous drug Molly from Elderidge Graham.

They're still investigating exactly who his buyers were and whether they could be connected to sales at the University of Central Florida.

Channel 9 first spoke to college students in July who said the drug Molly was rampant on the UCF campus.

The Oviedo man is accused of selling the pure form of Ecstasy out of a home just a few miles away from the school.

What Graham is accused of having is even stronger: A crystalized form of the drug that could be mixed with anything.

Additionally, Oviedo police say parents Graham and Shea Paul let a week-old baby, a toddler and a 5-year-old watch drug deals and stay in rooms where drugs were being held.

Oviedo police said they have been watching the home of Graham and Paul for five months after getting an anonymous tip that Graham was dealing drugs.

All of it was happening in the shadows of the Oviedo ball fields at Roundlake Park.

Police found the man hiding in his bedroom closet and found a loaded handgun sitting on a dresser in reach of all the children.

Paul arrived home after being booked into the Seminole County Jail.

"You guys do not have permission to film my house," Paul said.

"Are you Shea?" asked Channel 9's Karla Ray.

"Yes," Paul said.

"Do you have anything to say about you being arrested?" Ray asked.

"No, I don't have anything to say to you guys. You need to leave," Paul said.

Police said Graham will not be returning to the home.

A judge denied the accused drug dealer bond.

Graham and Paul should be forced to ingest all of the drugs that they had. If they don't survive, too bad.
