Attleboro man facing meth manufacturing charge


ATTLEBORO, MASS. >> An Attleboro man is heading to court to face a judge after police say they found a methamphetamine manufacturing operation in his home.

Robert Acheson is scheduled to be arraigned Monday on related charges.

Police say they responded to the 52-year-old man's home at about 12:40 p.m. Sunday for a possible overdose. Acheson was taken to the hospital, where he was treated and released. He was later arrested.

Chief Kyle Heagney says two other home homes in the neighborhood were evacuated while volatile chemicals used to make meth were cleared out of the home.

Heagney said in his 17 years as an officer in Attleboro he could not recall a meth lab being found in the city.

It could not be determined if Acheson had a lawyer.
