WALDOBORO, Maine — A 37-year-old Waldoboro man was arrested Wednesday and charged with trafficking in bath salts after Maine Drug Enforcement Agency agents allegedly found 20 grams of the drug at his home.
The arrest marks the second time in five weeks that Bradford Davis has been charged with trafficking in bath salts, according to a release from the Maine State Police.
MDEA agents, Maine State Police troopers, Lincoln County deputies and Waldoboro police officers seized the alleged drugs Wednesday at Davis’ home on Friendship Road, the release said.
At the time, Davis was on bail from a Jan. 17 arrest, when he was charged with the same crime, according to the release. At that time, agents allegedly seized 44 grams of bath salts.
MDEA supervisor James Pease said Friday that Davis had been working alone, allegedly selling the drug primarily in Knox County.
Pease said bath salts sell for about $20 to $30 for 1/10 of a gram, calling what Davis was allegedly found with “a decent amount.”
He was taken to Two Bridges Regional Jail in Wiscasset and held without bail after reportedly violating bail conditions on his prior arrest.
Davis was scheduled to make his initial court appearance Friday in Lincoln County Court.
