MASHPEE - Two women who run the Notorious B.L.U.E. Kennel in Mashpee are in hot water again. The Times reports Kelly Hayden and Rebecca Clancy, both 25, were arrested after allegedly trying to sell OxyContin to an undercover police officer. The pair were charged with possession of Class B, Possession of Class B with intent to distribute and conspiracy to violate controlled substance laws. They reportedly had two 80 MG OxyContin pills in their possession. The two made headlines last January after a dog was found beheaded. They were not charged with that crime but were arrested for intimidating a witness, the beheaded dog's owner. They later admitted sufficient facts to the intimidation and the case was continued without a finding for a year. Alleged deplorable conditions at their kennel which was apparently being run out of their home led Mashpee officials to draft new by-laws for kennels in town which will be voted on at an upcoming town meeting.
