Maynard Police Call Attention to Recovery Resources after Three Residents Overdose, Two Fatally, in Three Separate Incidents

MAYNARD — Chief Mark W. Dubois and the Maynard Police Department are urgently seeking to call attention to resources in town available for those suffering from substance use disorders, particularly those using opioids, as a recent spike in overdoses has taken two lives and left a third resident in critical condition after an overdose incident in another community.

Two 26-year-old men died in Maynard on Feb. 23 and March 24, in separate incidents after they allegedly overdosed on heroin. A third resident, a 35-year-old Maynard woman overdosed on March 24 in another city and is currently fighting for her life at a hospital in Central Massachusetts.

Chief Dubois is getting the word out to inform people about the dangers of opioids and the risk of overdose and to remind everyone about the resources available to prevent overdose death.

The Maynard Police Department is a member of the Police Assisted Addiction and Recovery Initiative (P.A.A.R.I.) and is part of the Central Middlesex Police Partnership. The Department has retained the services of recovery coach Coretta McGill, and she is available free of charge to those in need of substance abuse services and their families. McGill can be reached at 978-216-9863 or via email at corettaamericorps@paariusa.org.

Again, there are NO COSTS associated with McGill’s recovery coach services, and her salary and compensation are paid by P.A.A.R.I. through its AmeriCorps program. There are no fees and no insurance is needed.

The Maynard Police Department can also assist families needing nasal narcan, which is available at pharmacies and can be acquired without a prescription in Massachusetts.

“We are not simply alerting our residents about this spate of overdoses. We have resources available to help those who are suffering from the disease of addiction,” Chief Dubois said. “One overdose death is too many, especially for that person’s friends and family and for our community to endure the senseless loss of life.”

Anyone with any questions or concerns can also contact the Maynard Police Department at 978-897-1011 or 978-897-1012 anytime.

MAYNARD — Police Chief Mark W. Dubois reports that the Maynard Police Department, Maynard Fire Department, and Massachusetts State Police Bomb Squad respond to a residential neighborhood on Saturday morning after a homeowner reported finding a suspicious device near their home.

Officials respond to the area of 6 Walcott St. in Maynard at around 11 a.m. Saturday. Upon arrival and after an assessment, Maynard Police decided to request the assistance of the Bomb Squad.

The bomb squad determined that the device was not explosive in nature. The bomb squad rendered the device safe. Officials do not believe there was any kind of detonation mechanism, and the incident is being investigated as a possible hoax device.

The incident is being investigated by the Maynard Police and State Police assigned to the Office of the State Fire Marshal.

Anyone with information about this incident or the device left in the neighborhood is asked to call the Maynard Police Department at 978-897-1011; or the Maynard Police Department Anonymous Tip line at 978-897-0563 or the Massachusetts Arson Hotline at 1-800-682-9229. All calls may be confidential. The Arson Hotline is part of the Arson Watch Reward Program which provides rewards of UP TO $5,000 for information that helps to solve the case. The program is funded by the property and casualty insurance underwriting companies of Massachusetts.

Maynard Police Department Investigating Bomb Threat

Threat Believed to be a Hoax

MAYNARD — Lt. Michael A. Noble reports that the Maynard Police Department is working with state and federal authorities to investigate a bomb threat that is believed to be a hoax.

Maynard Police received a call shortly before 6 p.m. Monday from a town resident who found a quantity of shotgun shells in a bag on the sidewalk in front of her house. Various messages were scribbled on the shells themselves, making references to terrorism and a bomb planted on a bus in town.

Maynard Police notified the Massachusetts State Police Fusion Center and federal authorities, as well as the Town Administrator’s office, School Department, and school bus contractor. The vicinity and all four of the town’s school buses were thoroughly searched by Maynard Police and the State Police Bomb Squad, and no danger was found. State Police took custody of the shotgun shells

“While we believe this incident is most likely a hoax, we are taking it very seriously and conducting a thorough investigation, utilizing all of the resources at our disposal,” Lt. Noble said. “We will prosecute those responsible.”

Maynard Police note that, even if a hoax is ascertained, this incident falls under MGL c 269 s 14 “Terroristic Threats,” violation of which is a felony carrying up to 20 years in prison.

Out of an abundance of caution, Maynard Police will have extra units monitoring the Maynard Public Schools on Tuesday.

This incident is being actively investigated by the Maynard Police Department. Anyone with information is strongly urged to call 978-897-1011 or 978-897-1012 or they may dial the department’s anonymous Tip line: 978-897-0563

Chief Mark W. Dubois is currently out of the state on United States Army Reserve duties.

RONALD ROYSE, AGE 48, OF ACTON was charged with:

  • Operating Under the Influence of Alcohol (Fourth Offense)
  • Operating With a Suspended License (Subsequent Offense)
  • One Way Street Violation
  • Motor Vehicle Lights Violation
  • Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle

On June 4 at approximately 1:16 a.m., Officer Thomas Palmerino was patrolling Nason Street when he noticed a vehicle with no headlights or taillights active, traveling the wrong way up the road.

Officer Palmerino caught up with the vehicle near the Maynard Fire Department and conducted a motor vehicle stop. ROYSE pulled over in a convenience store parking lot and immediately got out of the vehicle and held his hands up.

Officers on scene noticed that ROYSE had slurred speech and a strong odor of alcohol coming from him. He then failed multiple field sobriety tests. A breath test was administered, and ROYSE registered a .128, which is more than 50% higher than the legal limit of .08.

ROYSE was held at the Maynard Police Department on $10,000 cash bail pending his arraignment Monday morning in Concord District Court.
