    A 20-year-old Massachusetts man is accused of dealing drugs over Snapchat.

    Detectives say Akiva Or-Shahar of Andover sold LSD and ecstasy to two teenagers, who ended up in the hospital.

    According to court documents, the mother of one of the teens who bought the drugs told police the Snapchat handle the alleged dealer was using.

    Police then snapped Or-Shahar and set up a deal on a neighborhood street in Tewksbury.

    When they took him into custody, they allegedly found 67 tabs of LSD in his car and 29 grams of ecstasy.

    The teens who allegedly bought the drugs from the Snapchat dealer are both 16. They went to the hospital after ingesting the LSD.

    The mother of the teen who tipped off police says both boys are out of the hospital.
