Springfield man faces drug charges

A Springfield man is facing drug charges following a week-long investigation that began last Thursday when state troopers from the Rutland Barracks responded to a trespassing complaint in Mount Holly.


  1. Wonderful! According to the article, this gentleman was charged with two counts of drug possession. Apparently breaking and entering is no longer a crime in Vermont.

    1. I was on a jury once where a man entered a house, without getting into the details, the law is if you don't have a No trespassing sign on your door anyone can come in.

  2. And to think this town used to export high precision machinery around the world.

    One of the reasons people do what this guy has done is that Wall Street sucked Precision Valley out of town.

    If you're under 50, you don't know how good it used to be, but kids could be duffers throughout their school years and still count on getting some sort of job after they got out, one that-- if they kept their nose clean-- would be theirs for their entire working life.

    Today, no business is safe. We could enact laws that would make it very expensive for cowboy capitalists to treat our economic base like a collection of trinkets, but first we have to understand that until we do, Springfield's economic situation is just going to give a number of young people a reason to escape in substance abuse.

  4. Chuck, just to review, wall street played a minor roll. Better look to North Springfield and Boston for your reasons for failure.

    Losing $140,000,000 in annual payrolls plus more in inventory and business taxes is not a minor effect for a fairly good-sized city, much less a town of 10,000. What's the North Springfield and Boston reference about?
