Bangor, Maine:  United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Dustin Giles, 31, of Caribou, Maine, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court by Judge John A. Woodcock, Jr. for conspiring to distribute bath salts to 28 months in prison to be followed by three years of supervised release.  The defendant pled guilty to the charge on January 12, 2016.

According to court records, between about January 2012 and June 2014, Giles conspired with others in Aroostook County to obtain bath salts overseas via the internet and distribute it.  Specifically, Giles was supplied with bath salts by another member of the conspiracy and distributed it to multiple customers. 

The case was investigated by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency with assistance from the Aroostook County Sheriff’s Department and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.
