ROCKLAND — The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) says three Rockland residents were arrested on Thursday, September 20, and charged with possessing bath salts.
The arrested persons included Hillary Hannan, 24, who was arrested for possession of synthetic hallucinogenic drugs (bath salts), and on warrants for failure to pay fines; Allan Boody, 27, arrested for felony possession of synthetic hallucinogenic drugs (bath salts) and violation of probation; and Corey Conway, 41, arrested for felony possession of synthetic hallucinogenic drugs and violation of probation.
Both Conway and Boody were currently on probation for previous drug violations, and both of there charges were elevated to felonies.
The arrests were made Thursday as drug agents, joined by Rockland and State Police and the Knox County Sheriffs Department, conducted two separate investigations into Rockland residents buying and receiving synthetic hallucinogenic drugs off the Internet, and then using and reselling them in Rockland. Conway was arrested at his apartment on Broadway Street, and Hannan and Boody were taken into custody at their residence on North Main Street.

The trio was taken to the Knox County Jail in Rockland.
