SEARSPORT, Maine — A chemical plant worker who was behaving erratically on the job last week was arrested and charged with possession of hallucinogenic drugs, Bangor Daily News reported.

According to the Searsport Police Department, Toran Bragdon, an employee at GAC Chemical Corp. of Searsport, Maine, was walking back and forth in a suspicious manner late in the afternoon of Feb. 1.

A police officer searched Bragdon and found five small bags of a white, powder-like substance.

Tests later confirmed that the powder was the synthetic hallucinogenic drug known as bath salts.

“It’s a powerful drug,” said Chief Dick LaHaye of the Searsport Police Department. “In law enforcement, we know not much good can come of it. It’s user and buyer beware. It’s dangerous.”
