Bedford Man Arrested On Felony Drug Dealing Charges

Last updated on Monday, September 15, 2008

(BEDFORD) - A drug investigation has led to the arrest of the son of one of Bedford’s chief safety officers.

Bedford Assistant Chief of Police Dan Kirk tells WBIW News 21-year-old James Gillespie, son of Bedford Fire Department Chief Scott Gillespie, was arrested on a Class-A felony charge of Dealing a Schedule III Controlled Substance within 1,000 feet of a school.

Kirk says details aren't available at the moment, partially due to technical problems at the department caused by yesterday's storms, but did say Gillespie had allegedly been dealing out of his 13th Street home, near Bedford Middle School.

The family, at this time, is unable to comment on the situation.
