What the Patch failed to report is that the Lynn man, Legault, was caught selling oxycodone to a Salem DPW employee, James Soper, and that Soper made the buy during work hours and while using a city vehicle. That's the real story.

Thats what happens when you cooperate with police. Remember back to October when the DEA made drug raids? "Jason Gentry, 32, of 5 Station Rd., Salem, was charged with possession with intent to distribute oxycodone. " Jason had all charges dropped. http://salem.patch.com/articles/bangkok-paradise-owner-5-others-arrested-in-multi-agency-drug-raids
