AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine drug agents have seized a bath salts mailing in Presque Isle and arrested several suspects in an oxycodone ring in Bangor.

In Presque Isle, Maine Drug Enforcement Agents and local police on Thursday arrested 25-year-old Joshua Dunn and took possession of packages containing what drug agents believed to be synthetic cathinones, or bath salts. Agents also seized $900 in cash. Dunn faces trafficking charges and was in jail Friday.

Drug agents said they wrapped up a yearlong criminal investigation of illegal oxycodone sales with arrests in Bangor and Caribou. One of the suspects had been arrested for trafficking previously and pleaded guilty.
