Pair arrested on drug possession and distribution charges.


A Woburn man and woman were arrested on drug possession and distribution charges last Tuesday.

McMaster, 22, also of 18 Spring Court Ext., were arrested and charged with: Possession of a Class B Drug (Oxycodone/Percocet), Possess to Distribute Class B Drug (Oxycodone/Percocet), and Conspiracy to Violate Drug Law (Distribute Oxycodone/Percocet).

Lets be real, we all make mistakes, no one is perfect, everyone must have something they are not proud of big or small but we hopefully if nothing else learn from it and try to be better people. O and by the way I thought this website was to tell the news not a free for all bashing website....not sure whether they should allow any comments to be posted on these types of articles in the future! Some comments seem very cruel on a personal level!

Let's be real. This was not a mistake. Words have meanings, and if you don’t know what 'mistake' means go to http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/mistake and read up. This was a deliberate act that the parties knew was against the law before they undertook it. When one sets out to break the law they shouldn't be surprised that there could be consequences including the loss of money, children, freedom, and/or public assistance.

I do know what mistake means ......The word 'mistake' means 1: to make a mistake or be incorrect; 2: an understanding of something that is not correct; 3: a wrong action attributable to bad judgment or ignorance or inattention; 4: part of a statement that is not correct; 5: identify incorrectly http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_an_mistake

@ Old Townie... this is taken directly from your cited website, : a wrong action or statement proceeding from faulty judgment, inadequate knowledge, or inattention. I believe it was a mistake, a wrong action proceeding from faulty judgment. I don't think the article stated anywhere that they were "surprised" and as I stated before, they will be the ones to suffer the consequences of their "mistakes". I just hate to see people on here judging others so harshly without knowing all of the circumstances. Especially for someone who "knows one of them personally" to be so critical and two-faced and to hide behind an alias and to say what she thinks should be done to her children. Those are babies, they should be left out of it. The police left them out of it and so did the newspaper, so for this woman... who ever she is to come on here and comment about her children is just wrong on soooo many levels. Shame on her!!!

This sounds like a good bust, maybe these two can do some life adjustments quick and get a job and off the goverment dime! The Woburn Police do a great job, thank you for all you do, please keep in mind civil rights and avoid paramilitary task forces..it always ends bad.
