A Corinth woman was sentenced to two years in federal prison Monday for possession with intent to distribute bath salts that she picked up at the St. Albans post office, according to a press release from the U.S. Department of Justice.

Krystal Bell, 29, was arrested in May 2014 after police stopped her outside the post office in St. Albans with a package of bath salts that had been mailed from China.

Bell told police officers at the post office that the package contained Alpha-PVP, a schedule I controlled substance commonly referred to as bath salts, according to the release. She said she had agreed to pick up the drugs for another person and that she intended to deliver the drugs to the other person, according to the release.

Bell plead guilty to the charge on Feb. 13. She was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Bangor to two years in prison and three years of supervised release. She was also ordered to pay a $1,000 fine, the release said.

The case was investigated by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency.
