RANDOLPH (CBS) – A town councilor in Randolph was arrested Tuesday and charged with possession of methamphetamine.
James Burgess, 49, was arrested by Massachusetts State Police along with 33-year-old Scott Donaghue, who was charged with distribution of methamphetamine.
Both men live at a Fairmont Street home.
Prosecutors say Burgess admitted to using one ounce of meth that was found in a nightstand.
Burgess announced in June 2016 he was running for state representative. But three months later he updated his supporters that the campaign had not been successful.
Following his arraignment in Quincy District Court, Burgess was released on personal recognizance. Donaghue was held on $6,000 bail.
