BREWER, Maine—Brewer police following up on a tip about suspicious activity have arrested a Bangor man and accused him of selling the recreational drug known as bath salts.

Police went to a motel earlier this week and arrested 32-year-old Ryan Ellis on charges of aggravated trafficking in a synthetic hallucinogenic drug, possession of concealed weapons, having a loaded firearm in a motor vehicle, trafficking in dangerous knives and refusal to submit to arrest or detention.

Police say a search of his room turned up nearly a pound of bath salts with an estimated street value of more than $60,000. The search also yielded four guns and a knife.

Ellis has been released on $2,000 bail.

Bath salts mimic cocaine, LSD and methamphetamine and can cause disorientation, extreme paranoia and violence.
