Target of regional oxycodone drug investigation still held – MetroWest Daily News

Several men, including a Natick man at the center of a federal oxycodone distribution ring, remain held without bail after federal authorities arrested them last week.

Michael Bourque, 42, of 325 Speen St., was in federal court on Monday for a detention hearing, but a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s office said the hearing was not completed and a date for it to be continued has not been set.

Authorities also are still holding Brian Chisholm, 44, of Newton, Michael Roy, 32, of Milford, and John Kinney, 29, of Woburn, alleged drug customers of Bourque.

Two other men – Mark Ouellette, 43, of Shirley, and Sean Cotter, 41, of Acton – who authorities say helped arrange, and then sold, Bourque about 700 pills of oxycodone, also remain held.

Also still held is Frank McGuire, 42, of Natick. Authorities say he acted as a drug runner for Bourque, dropping off pills to customers and picking up money. He is scheduled to return to federal court today for a detention hearing.

Several other men, including people who worked for Bourque and others who authorities say were customers, have been released on $25,000 bond each.

Robert Haegnaars, 37, of Waltham; Barry Goolst, 42, of Newton; Phillip Goolst, 49, of Newton; Thomas Ehwa, 26, of Waltham; Christopher Yancey, 41, of Natick;, Corey Assencoa, 43, of Hopkinton; Mark Newton, 27, of Hudson; and Raymond Panaggio, 44, of Newton, were all released.

All of those men, except for Assencoa, are due back in federal court on May 23 for a probable cause hearing. No new court date has been set for Assencoa.

Authorities say Bourque owned the DEX Corporation at 197 West Central St., Natick, and used the shipping business as a front for the drug-dealing enterprise.

The investigation began in 2011 after the Natick and Framingham police arrested a person with 700 oxycodone pills. That person later cooperated with police and said he worked for Bourque.
