OLD TOWN, Maine — An Orrington woman out on bail who apparently was using the synthetic drug bath salts was arrested after Old Town police Officer Brent Fournier found her with a container of the dangerous street drug, Capt. Kyle Smart said Thursday.

Robin Mayo, 37, was parked in a no parking zone and Fournier stopped to check to see if she was OK and found her disoriented, the police captain said.

“She was unable to stand still” and was exhibiting other signs of bath salts use, Smart said. “A search located a container with a white powdery substance.”

That container was taken to the Bangor police station, where a test was done to detect whether it contained bath salts, he said.

“The drug tested positive for MDPV,” or methylenedioxypyrovalerone, a common component of the lab-made drug, Smart said.

A urine test also was done on Mayo, and she tested positive for marijuana use, he said. She was arrested for possession of synthetic hallucinogenic drugs and violating her bail conditions and taken to Penobscot County Jail in Bangor. She was later released, Smart said.
