Maine Drug Agents Seize $450K of Bath Salts
02/13/2013 02:24 PM ET  

The MDEA says the package was addressed to Leonard Wells, one of four people charged last month with drug trafficking in connection with the seizure of 18 pounds of bath salts.

HAMPDEN, Maine (AP) _ Maine drug agents say they've seized $450,000 worth of so-called bath salts that were in a package mailed to a man who was charged just last month in a separate case involving $1.2 million worth of the drugs.

Officials last week searched a package mailed from China to a mail facility in Hampden. Inside the package, agents found more than 6-and-a-half pounds of bath salts, a synthetic drug that can make users delusional and violent.

The MDEA says the package was addressed to Leonard Wells at an address in Greenbush. Wells was one of four people charged last month with drug trafficking in connection with the seizure of 18 pounds of bath salts.

Nobody has been charged in last week's seizure, but police say arrests are anticipated.
