Authorities say they found chemicals used to make molly, a type of ecstacy, in a Plant City home.

Officials searched the home in the 4900 block of Pandora Place in Plant City.  Investigators say the home contained a number of potentially dangerous chemical materials.

At least five homes between the residence and Charleston Avenue were evacuated as a precaution, officials said.  

The landlord, Kelly Doyle, told News Channel 8's Josh Green that she was renting the home to her third cousins, Ronnie and Maria Porter.  There were no problems until they started falling behind on payments last year.  This morning, they were evicted, and that's when officials discovered the suspicious items.

MDMA, also known as molly or ecstacy, has become increasingly popular at parties and raves.
