Bath salts seized in South Thomaston arrest
South Thomaston — Multiple law enforcement agencies arrested a man in South Thomaston Feb. 19 and seized drugs believed to be bath salts, according to a press release from the Maine Department of Public Safety.
Maine Drug Enforcement Agency agents, state troopers and Knox County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Leonard D. Wells Jr., 53, of Greenbush on judicial arrest warrants from Penobscot County for burglary and violation of conditions of release.
Agents found Wells hiding out at a house in South Thomaston during a routine probation check at the residence of another person.
Wells originally gave the agents a false name as he was aware of the warrants for his arrest.
Once arrested, agents seized about 20 grams of what is believed to be bath salts from him.
Wells was taken to the Knox County Jail on the warrants and issued a summons for possession of synthetic hallucinogenic drugs. Wells was arrested on felony drug charges in Penobscot County Jan. 18 and posted bail.
