Two men face arraignment in Boston after being charged by city police in a bust involving the drug "molly," which is suspected in several recent deaths and overdoses.

Twenty-nine-year-old Daniel Milisi of Boston and 36-year-old Joseph Doolin of Quincy are to be arraigned on drug charges Monday at South Boston District Court.

Police say they arrested Milisi and Doolin at a South Boston bar Friday during a molly bust. It's not clear if they have lawyers.

Three people recently overdosed on Molly at the House of Blues club in Boston, including a college student from New Hampshire who died. Molly also is suspected in two recent deaths in New York City.

Molly is a pure form of ecstasy.

Police won't say whether Friday's bust was connected to the recent overdoses.
