BANGOR, Maine — A man called 911 to say he was overdosing on synthetic bath salts drugs Sunday afternoon at an apartment on Ohio Street where several other people were consuming the dangerous street drug, Bangor police Sgt. Jason Stuart said.

“We got a call — someone reporting that they were overdosing on bath salts” at 202 Ohio St., apartment 12, the sergeant said. The emergency 911 call was made at about 1:30 p.m.

When police and rescue crews arrived, the party attendees appeared to be under the influence of bath salts, and “they received medical attention,” Stuart said.

One attendee, Lynn Cook, 48, of Bangor, was arrested because she was wanted for outstanding warrants. The three warrants are for unpaid fines associated with 2012 convictions for possession of bath salts, possession of other scheduled drugs, possessing hypodermic apparatuses and operating vehicle while license suspended or revoked, a Penobscot County Jail official said.

Cook, who has other bath salts involvements, according to prior stories printed in the Bangor Daily News, remained behind bars Sunday night, the jail official said.

Police are still investigating the Ohio Street drug incident, so few other details could be released on Sunday, Stuart said.
