Skilyer Earl, 18, was taken into custody last week, according to the Douglas County Sheriff's Facebook page, for selling MDMA (ecstasy) and marijuana to agents with the Special Investigations Division. The agents received information that Earl was dealing narcotics in Douglas County.
Agents were able to arrange a meeting with Earl where he sold marijuana and ecstasy to undercover officers over the course of a 30 day period.
