THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, July 1, 2022 Page 15 Former Malden Firefighter Pleads Guilty to Possession and Distribution of Controlled Substances OSTON – A former Malden firefighter pleaded guilty on June 23 in federal court in Boston in connection with conspiring to distribute controlled substances including oxycodone, suboxone, Klonopin and Adderall. Joshua Eisnor, 43, of North Reading, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute and to possess with intent to distribute controlled substances. U.S. District Court Judge Leo T. Sorokin scheduled sentencing for Oct. 11, 2022. Eisnor was charged on May 26, 2022. While working as a firefighter at the Malden Fire Department, Eisnor distributed controlled substances to other members of the Malden Fire Department. “As a firefighter, Mr. Eisnor was responsible for the safety and wellbeing of Malden’s residents. His conduct violated this duty by potentially compromising the security and operations of the fire department B and putting residents at risk,” said United States Attorney Rachael S. Rollins. “My office has a zero-tolerance policy for public officials who abuse their positions of trust.” “Former Malden firefighter Joshua Eisnor admitted today to dealing drugs—while on duty—to his fellow firefighters, putting them, and the community they serve in potential danger," said Joseph R. Bonavolonta, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Boston Division. “His actions are an affront to the overwhelming majority of firefighters who go to work substance-free and alcohol-free every day and risk their lives to protect ours.” “Prescription drugs offered illegally have no guarantees of safety or efficacy and hold the potential to harm those who use them,” Bradley E. Greenburg, Acting Special Agent in Charge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Office of Criminal Tie softball game highlights this years Agganis all-star contests By Greg Phipps he annual four-day Agganis All-Star event featured an odd tie game and, as always, showcased some of the best talent in the area.
