Southern Maine Man Sentenced for Trafficking Bath Salts and Opiates
A 42-year-old Portland man was sentenced Tuesday to 80 months in prison and three years of supervised release for conspiring to distribute bath salts, fentanyl, and heroin and for distributing heroin.
Jonathan Day pleaded guilty to the charges on April 1, 2016.
According to court records, from February through May 2015, Day was involved in a conspiracy that distributed bath salts, heroin, and fentanyl. Heroin and fentanyl were obtained from sources in New Hampshire and Massachusetts and bath salts were obtained through the mail from a source outside the United States. Day and his co-conspirators distributed the drugs to customers throughout the state.
This case results from an investigation conducted by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the Scarborough and Portland Police Departments.
