Presque Isle Man Sentenced To 73 Months For Bath Salts Distribution Conspiracy
MAR 07 - BANGOR, Maine - Michael J. Ferguson Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration for New England and United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Nathan Brewer, 35, of Presque Isle, Maine, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court by Judge John A. Woodcock, Jr. to 73 months in prison and three years of supervised release for conspiring to distribute bath salts. The defendant pled guilty on January 23, 2015.
According to court records, between about January 2012 and June 2014, Brewer conspired with others to obtain bath salts overseas via the internet and to distribute it in Aroostook County. Brewer raised money from other conspirators to place orders large enough to receive a bulk discount.
The case was investigated by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency with assistance from the Aroostook County Sheriff’s Department and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.
