BREWER, Maine — An Old Town woman who is known to police and a Hermon man were stopped in Brewer for a minor traffic violation last week and both were charged for having synthetic bath salts, Brewer police Deputy Chief Jason Moffitt said Monday.

Kelsey L. Michaud, 19, was charged by Officer Kristie Bouchard with felony trafficking in synthetic hallucinogenic drugs “due to the quantity,” the deputy chief said.

“A baggie weighing in at 14 grams tested positive for bath salts,” Moffitt said.

Michaud, who “has been arrested numerous times locally,” also was charged with sale and use of drug paraphernalia, he said. Michaud faces up to 10 years in prison if she’s convicted of the trafficking charge.

Leonard D. Wells Jr., 53, was her passenger and was charged with unlawful possession of bath salts and for violating his bail conditions, the deputy chief said.

Both were booked into Penobscot County Jail in Bangor and Wells remained there on Monday, a jail official said.
