Man who sold bath salts from China sentenced to prison

Christina TkacikContact ReporterThe Baltimore Sun

A Lutherville man who sold bath salts from China has been sentenced to five years in prison, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.

According to his plea agreement, Carlo D'Addario, 48, used fake email addresses from 2014 to 2016 to buy bath salts from China. The drugs are similar to ecstasy and methamphetamine. He paid for them with more than $53,000 through Western Union and other services.

D'Addario distributed the drugs in the United States. In some cases, the drugs appeared to make the users ill, causing users vomiting and prolonged loss of consciousness, the DOJ said.

Police searched D'Addario's home Oct. 6, 2016, recovering drugs, boxes sent to his house from China and other paraphernalia. At the time, D'Addario was on supervised release for a previous federal drug trafficking conviction.

U.S. District Judge Richard D. Bennett sentenced D'Addario on Thursday to five years in prison, followed by three years of supervised release.

The prosecutors were Jason D. Medinger and Burden C. Walker.
