The names of three people arrested and the charges against them are now released after a drug task force interrupted the manufacture of methamphetamine in downtown Washington. All three are charged with conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine. It’s 50 year old Ronald Boileau of Washington, 26 year old Kyle Boileau of Wayland, and 23 year old Brianna Hole of Wayland. Ronald Boileau is also charged with three counts of delivering meth.
At least two of them were arrested yesterday afternoon on the south side of the square after one of them was using what Washington Police Chief Greg Goodman calls the bucket method of meth manufacture.
This smaller-scale method did not pose and danger of explosion, but the suspects and two dogs that were also in the car were washed with a fire hose for de-contamination. Chemicals used to make meth can be flammable and poisonous. More details of the incident are expected to be released.
[UPDATED: An earlier version of this story listed Kyle Boileau and Brianna Hole as Washington residents. A preliminary police report listed a residence on East Madison in Washington for both.]
