Two men are facing criminal charges after officers said they discovered items used to make bath salts at an Antigo home.
Officers from the Antigo Police Department and an Deputy with the Sheriff's Department executed a search warrant at a home on the 1600 block of 10th Avenue Sunday night.
Inside, investigators discovered a mass quantity of unused syringes, tubes, a digital scale, plastic baggies, and .36 grams of a powdery substance, later confirmed to be bath salts.
Four people were at the home at the time of the search. Jeffery Spencer, 38, is expected to be charged with maintaining a drug trafficking place, possession with intent to abuse a hazardous substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Nathan Bailey, 23, is expected to be charged with possession with intent to abuse a hazardous substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and four counts of bail jumping.
Online court records do not show any future court dates for either suspect, however, the Langlade County Clerk of Courts thought Spencer had made his initial appearance on Monday.
Bailey is in custody in the Langlade County Jail. Spencer was released on Monday.
On August 7, the Sheriff's Department held town hall-style meeting to address concerns and educate the public about Antigo's bath salt problem. NewsChannel 7's Hannah Anderson was at that meeting. Click here to view that story.
