A Presque Isle man was sentenced Wednesday to four years in prison for conspiring to distribute bath salts.

Thirty-two-year-old Andrew Grivois appeared before Judge John A. Woodcock, Jr. in U.S. District Court in Bangor and received a sentence of four years in prison and three years of supervised release.

The defendant pleaded guilty to the charge on March 3, according to U. S. Attorney Thomas Delahanty II.


Court records show that between June 2012 and June 2014, Grivois conspired with others in Aroostook County to obtain and distribute bath salts. On multiple occasions, Grivois ordered bath salts over the internet from China for personal use and to sell to other conspirators.

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 Office and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.
