Police raid nets pot plants, guns and a suspect
Ex-correction worker charged
By Kim Ring TELEGRAM & GAZETTE STAFF
SPENCER— A former Department of Correction employee was arraigned yesterday on charges he was growing marijuana for sale in his Main Street apartment and had a loaded gun in his car when police raided his home earlier this month.
Police allegedly found 75 fledgling marijuana plants set under grow lights in a spare bedroom, where the heat was also turned up, in Justin P. Boudreau’s apartment at 6 Main St., Apt. 6, when they conducted a raid May 18.
They also allegedly found two rifles in the apartment and a loaded .40-caliber Sig Sauer handgun in the console of his unlocked car. Mr. Boudreau was arrested Wednesday night on a warrant issued by Western Worcester District Court, East Brookfield.
Officers also seized letters from a female inmate at Framingham State Prison. The letters were addressed to Jeff Podine of 8 Sunset Lane, Spencer, a residence police also raided May 18. In that incident, Jeff M. Castro, 26, of that address, was arrested and charged with drug violations.
Members of the Worcester County Regional Drug and Counter Crime Task Force and Spencer police conducted the investigation. Their report indicates that Jeff Podine is a fictitious name. The Web site, Urbandictionary.com, lists the word “podine” as a slang term for police.
Officers also believe that the inmate’s letters may be related to another crime.
“It is the belief of this officer that these letters might unfold other illegal activities taking place, stemming from the focus of this investigation,” the police report states.
Inside Mr. Boudreau’s apartment, officers seized the 75 plants, a pH test kit, soil, timers and other materials they believe are related to growing the marijuana plants.
Police wrote in their report that Mr. Bourdreau is an employee of the state Department of Correction. A spokesman for that agency said yesterday Mr. Boudreau is no longer working there but declined to say when, or why, his tenure there ended.
At his arraignment in Western Worcester District Court in East Brookfield yesterday, Mr. Boudreau was released on personal recognizance and is slated to appear for a pretrial hearing July 16.
