OLD TOWN, Maine — A routine traffic stop led to trouble for a Greenbush woman Wednesday night when Old Town police said they found her in possession of bath salts.

Old Town police Sgt. Scott Casey said that Officer Ryan Fitch stopped a car on Main Street just after 10 p.m. due to a broken headlight, and when Fitch discovered that passenger Bradley Bellfleur, 18, of Old Town had a warrant out for his arrest, the other three occupants were searched.

The search eventually found that the driver, Jessie Honnell, 22, of Greenbush, was in possession of an illegal knife, cocaine paraphernalia and the synthetic drug bath salts, Casey said.

She was arrested and charged with possession of a dangerous knife, unlawful possession of bath salts and the sale and use of drug paraphernalia, Casey said. Bellfleur was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and of a hypodermic apparatus.

Both suspects were transported to the Penobscot County Jail, where they remained Thursday. Another occupant of the car, Martin Millett, 22, of Clifton was summoned for possession of drug paraphernalia but wasn’t arrested. (Ryan McLaughlin, BDN)
