Maynard Police Investigate After Construction Nail Gun Shells Are Found in Fowler School Bathroom

No Danger to Community

MAYNARD — Chief Mark W. Dubois reports that the Maynard Police Department is investigating after shell casings from a construction nail gun were found in a girls bathroom at the Fowler School on Thursday.

During the morning, a student in a physical education class found what appeared to be empty shell casings in a plastic clip. She immediately reported the findings to her teacher and said that the casings were inside the holes of a cinder block at the top of a wall in the bathroom.

The teacher notified Principal Sharon Seyller who called Maynard Police Detective Christopher Sweeney, the department’s school liaison. Detective Sweeney determined that the shells were not from any kind of firearm but rather originated in a powder actuated nail gun commonly used by construction workers to fasten items to concrete.

The shells were spent, and there was no explosive powder remaining in the shells.

While there has not been any recent construction work in the building, officials believe that the shells may have been left in the cinder block holes 15 years ago when the building was constructed.

The shells were removed, and school and police officials do not believe there is any danger to the community or any criminal intent in this instance.

“The safety and security of children at school is paramount for the Maynard Police Department,” Chief Dubois said. “Thankfully, this appears to be nothing more than the careless disposal of construction debris. We are grateful to the student who immediately came forward upon making this discovery.”

Chief Dubois and Superintendent Dr. Robert J. Gerardi, Jr. have also been in contact about the incident.

There was no disruption to the school day, and classes went on as scheduled Thursday.

Maynard Police to Co-host Screening of Film About Youth Prescription Drug Use

MAYNARD — Chief Mark W. Dubois is pleased to announce that the Maynard Police Department is partnering with Maynard High School and the Central Middlesex Police Partnership to host a community viewing of the film “If Only” later this month.

The free movie screening will take place on Jan. 26 at Maynard High School from 7-8:30 p.m. Co-written and produced by James Wahlberg, the short film was created to initiate a meaningful dialogue between parents and children, and within communities, about prescription drug use and opioid addiction.

Maynard High School students will view the film in school during the day on Jan. 26 and hear from James Wahlberg and Melissa Weiksnar, a Carlisle resident whose daughter died from an overdose.

“This film addresses one of the most serious health issues facing our society today. Addiction touches every culture, every family, and ultimately every one of us,” Wahlberg said. “I’m grateful for the opportunity to create a project that informs, educates and leads viewers to recognize the warning signs of opioid use and to participate in a solution.”

The Jan. 26 screening is open to the public, and supportive resources will be available as part of the event. Additionally, an accompanying display, called “Hidden in Plain Sight,” invites attendees to explore and interact with a mockup of a teenager’s bedroom, which illustrates signs and items that may indicate that a teen is involved in high-risk behaviors like substance abuse, underage drinking and more.

“No community has gone untouched by the opioid epidemic and that includes Maynard,” Chief Dubois said. “This event will be a great opportunity to come ask questions and talk about addiction in a safe and supportive environment. I would encourage all who are able to attend this screening.”

Audience members are invited to stay after the film and hear from Dr. Brian O’Connor of Middlesex Recovery, Chief Dubois, Weiksnar, a local person in recovery and MHS personnel.

For more information about the film, including a trailer, visit www.IfOnlyMovie.org. For additional information regarding the Jan. 26 viewing, contact Jennifer Gaudet, Curriculum Director of Maynard Public Schools, at jgaudet@maynard.k12.ma.us.

The film was made possible in part by Millennium Health, Recovery Centers of America and The Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation.

Maynard Police Host Tourniquet Training Developed by MGH Surgeon

MAYNARD — Chief Mark W. Dubois is pleased to announce that the Maynard Police Department hosted a “Stop the Bleed” tourniquet training last week.

The program, created by Dr. David King, LTC, was hosted at the Maynard Public Library, 77 Nason St., on Friday, Jan. 6.

Dr. King — a surgeon at Massachusetts General Hospital, an assistant professor of surgery at Harvard Medical School and a combat surgeon in the military for 14 years — is well known for completing the Boston Marathon just before the two bombs went off in 2013 and then immediately treating those who were injured.

The hour-long course, which was taught by Col. Richard L. Bailey and members of the 804th Medical Brigade based out of Fort Devens, focused on the importance of training both emergency responders and civilians alike on how to properly apply a tourniquet.

Col. Bailey began the session with a short video explaining appropriate situations to use a tourniquet and how to correctly apply one. The video also provided information about Dr. King and how his program has been proven to work. Just days after receiving this same training, two Boston Police Officers were shot in the line of duty and doctors credited the proper application of a tourniquet for saving one officer’s life.

Following the video, attendees broke out into small groups to practice applying the tourniquets. In each group, a member of the 804th Medical Brigade demonstrated proper technique and had participants practice applying the tourniquet three times on a prop — a trick that Dr. King believes help commit the skill to memory.

Col. Bailey stressed that civilians and bystanders are more likely to need this type of training for injuries and accidents that occur on the job site, at school or at home, where immediate treatment is required.

“This is not just for an active shooter or mass casualty event,” Colonel Bailey said during the program.

Members from Maynard Police, Fire and the Department of Public Works were present for the training, as well as representatives from the Concord, Acton, Bedford, Sudbury and Stow Police Departments.

“We were honored to host this training here in Maynard,” Chief Dubois said. “This information is important for all public safety officials and civilians to learn, as they may encounter a life-threatening situation or accident in their jobs or everyday lives that calls for emergency treatment before first responders arrive on scene.”

For more information about Dr. King’s Stop the Bleed program, or to schedule a training in your community, contact Col. Richard Bailey at COLRICKB@aol.com or 508-456-1881.

Maynard Town Hall Open as Cooling Center for Maynard Residents Today

MAYNARD — Fire Chief Anthony Stowers, Police Chief Mark Dubois and Town Administrator Kevin Sweet announce that the lower level of the Maynard Town Hall will be open as a cooling center for Maynard residents today.

The Town Hall cooling center, 195 Main St., is open to all Maynard residents until 4 p.m. today and from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. tomorrow to provide relief to those who may not have access to air conditioning or other ways to escape the heat. Water will be provided to residents who visit the cooling center.

Additionally, the Maynard Public Library, 77 Nason St., will be available as a cooling center from 2-9 p.m. today and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. tomorrow.

With temperatures reaching dangerously high levels, Chief Stowers, Chief Dubois and Town Administrator Sweet would like to remind residents to follow safety precautions outlined by the American Red Cross:

• Never leave children or pets alone in enclosed vehicles.
• Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids even if you do not feel thirsty. Avoid drinks with caffeine or alcohol.
• Eat small meals and eat more often.
• Wear loose-fitting, lightweight, light colored clothing. Avoid dark colors because they absorb the sun’s rays.
• Slow down, stay indoors and avoid strenuous exercise during the hottest part of the day.
• Postpone outdoor games and activities and take frequent breaks if you must work outdoors.
• Check on family, friends and neighbors who do not have air conditioning, who spend much of their time alone or who are more likely to be affected by the heat. Don’t forget to monitor your pets to ensure they are not suffering from the heat.

If you see anyone who may be suffering from heat-related conditions such as heat cramps, heat stroke or heat exhaustion, move the person indoors or a cooler place and hydrate. Call 911 if the person needs medical attention.

Maynard Police Department Awarded Full State Accreditation Status

MAYNARD — Chief Mark Dubois is pleased to announce that the Maynard Police Department has achieved full State Accreditation from the Massachusetts Police Accreditation Commission (MPAC) at an awards ceremony on Thursday, May 5 at the Connors Center in Dover.

Accreditation award 5.5.16

Accreditation is a self-initiated evaluation process by which police departments strive to meet and maintain the highest standards of law enforcement practice. It is considered the best measure of a police department against the established best practices around the country and region.

“It has taken a tremendous amount of hard work to get to this point, but we are honored to be recognized as one of the most professional policing agencies in the Commonwealth,” Chief Dubois said. “I am extremely proud of the Maynard Police Department and know that we could not have achieved the level of Accreditation without the dedication of our officers and staff.”

The process includes an intense self-review and an external assessment by the commission’s external team of subject matter experts.

The MPAC program includes 257 mandatory police department standards and 125 optional standards. In order to achieve accreditation, a department must meet all required standards and at least 60 percent of the optional ones.

Standards that are reviewed include: Jurisdiction and Mutual Aid, Collection and Preservation of Evidence, Communications, Working Conditions, Crime Analysis, Community Involvement, Financial Management, Internal Affairs, Juvenile Operations, Patrol, Administration, Public Information, Records, Traffic, Training, Drug Enforcement, Use of Force and Victim/Witness Assistance.

“Going through the process initially requires intense self-scrutiny, and ultimately provides a quality assurance review of the agency,” said Donna Taylor Mooers, Executive Director of MPAC. “Achieving Accreditation from the Massachusetts Police Accreditation Commission is a very significant accomplishment and a recognition highly regarded by the law enforcement community.”

To conduct an initial self-assessment and prepare for the on-site review, Chief Dubois appointed Lt. Michael Noble to serve as the department’s Accreditation Manager. The Department was assessed in December by a team of commission-appointed assessors. The Assessment Team found the Department to be in full compliance with all applicable standards for Accreditation.

The commission offers two program awards: Certification and Accreditation, with Accreditation being the higher of the two. Accreditation has been granted for a period of three years. Participation in the program is strictly voluntary.

Maynard Police Arrest Man for 4th OUI Offense

MAYNARD — Chief Mark Dubois reports that the Maynard Police Department arrested a man last night for his fourth Operating Under the Influence of Alcohol offense. This is the third time police have arrested the man for OUI in just over a month.

THOMAS MADDEN, AGE 43, OF MAYNARD, is charged with:

  • OUI Liquor (Fourth Offense)
  • OUI Related Offense While License Suspended for OUI
  • Operating a Motor Vehicle While License Suspended for OUI
  • Speeding
  • Failure to Display Headlights at Nighttime
  • Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle

On Thursday, May 5, at approximately 8 p.m., an officer working a patrol shift observed a sedan traveling at a high rate of speed in the area of 57 Powdermill Road without its headlights on. The officer recognized that the vehicle belonged to MADDEN, who had been seen by police earlier that day operating the same car with a suspended license.

Police initiated a motor vehicle stop on Powdermill Circle, and after an initial investigation, placed MADDEN under arrest without incident.

“Fortunately, no one was injured as a result of this individual’s reckless decision to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and with a suspended license,” Chief Dubois said. “We have zero tolerance for this behavior and I want to remind residents to never, under any circumstances, get behind the wheel if you have been drinking.”

MADDEN was held on $10,000 bail pending his arraignment at Concord District Court.

These are allegations. All suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty.

Joseph P. Lynsky

MAYNARD — Chief Mark Dubois reports that the Maynard Police Department arrested a man over the weekend for his fifth Operating Under the Influence of Alcohol offense.

JOSEPH P. LYNSKY, AGE 74, OF MAYNARD, is charged with:

  • OUI Liquor (Fifth Offense)
  • Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle
  • Operating With a Defective Tire (cut over 1 inch in length)

On Saturday, March 12, at approximately 10:50 a.m., Officer Shawn Corrigan was on Main Street when several pedestrians alerted him to a vehicle driving on its rim farther down the road. After continuing to travel down Main Street, Officer Corrigan observed that the front right tire was almost completely missing from a vehicle as it made a right turn onto River Street.

He then observed the operator, later identified as LYNSKY, exit the driver’s seat of the vehicle. Officer Corrigan stopped to assist LYNSKY and immediately noticed that he was very unsteady on his feet and smelled of alcohol.

After an investigation, LYNSKY was placed under arrest. He was released on bail later that day and arraigned at Concord District Court this morning.

“The actions of this individual were extremely reckless as he put his own life and the lives of all other motorists and pedestrians in danger,” Chief Dubois said. “Thanks to the swift action of residents and the quick response by police, this man was taken into custody without incident.”

These are allegations. All suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty.
