A noted local chef who was arrested in February has been cleared of all charges related to the incident, according to The Boston Globe. Tim Maslow, chef/owner of 1665 Beacon (formerly Ribelle), had faced charges of felony drug possession after he was stopped at the Canadian border, allegedly in possession of 22.5 pounds of THC edibles.
The Franklin County Criminal Court Clerk confirmed that the state of Vermont had dismissed all charges against Maslow. His father Paul, who owns Strip T's in Watertown, shared the news on Facebook Monday, posting: "Breaking news from the Vermont police blotter. ALL CHARGES DROPPED AGAINST TIM MASLOW. this is fantastic news, thank you everyone who has supported Tim !"
Maslow himself posted about the news on his Instagram page.
Since February, Ribelle has transitioned to its new name, with its website and social media reflecting the change. It has also shifted to a more French-focused menu, as opposed to its previous Italian-leaning menu. The restaurant is now open for lunch and dinner six days a week (closed Sundays), starting at noon.
