BOSTON (WHDH) - Two men were arraigned Monday on charges of trafficking methamphetamine after an overdose at a Boston hotel led to the discovery of a large amount of drugs in their room.
Jeffrey Bertrand, 30 of Everett, and Dylan Donahue, 23 of Granby, were charged with trafficking more than 100 grams of methamphetamine.
Donahue was additionally arraigned on two counts of possession of a Class B substance.
Each were held on $2,000 bail and ordered to wear a GPS monitoring bracelet, as well as home confinement.
According to prosecutors, they were staying in a room at the W Hotel on Thursday night into Friday.
Around 4:30 a.m., Bertrand allegedly overdosed on drugs and was transported to a hospital for treatment.
As a result, hotel staff told Donahue the men were being evicted from the room.
Donahue gathered their belongings and left.
Staff later discovered a bag inside a desk in the room that held a container of crystal meth, prosecutors said.
Police responded to the hotel and found Bertrand and Donahue, who had returned to the location.
Police determined the contents weighed 142 grams.
They are due to return to court on Oct. 5.
