Dixfield town manager charged in illegal marijuana operation has been fired

Dixfield’s town manager has been fired after he, three former police officers, a prosecutor, former selectman and others were charged in a wide-ranging marijuana conspiracy.

Dixfield selectmen voted unanimously Friday to fire 29-year-old James McLamb of Auburn, according to the Rumford Falls Times.

McLamb’s employment as town manager ends Nov. 16, during his probationary period. He was hired as town manager on a one-year contract in May, but has been on administrative leave since he was accused of involvement in the scheme to use medical grow houses to illegally sell $13 million of marijuana in and outside of Maine since 2016.
