The City Hall clerk who was charged with picking up a delivery of about 2,000 OxyContin tablets was released on $3,000 bail following his arraignment yesterday, authorities said.
Greg Horan, 30, of Boston is charged with trafficking OxyContin and possession with intent to distribute after he was arrested Tuesday morning in Post Office Square.
Horan, who was a manager in the city’s worker’s compensation office and has worked at City Hall since 2004, has been placed on unpaid leave, said Mayor Thomas Menino’s spokeswoman, Dot Joyce.
Suffolk District Attorney Daniel Conley’s office said prosecutors requested $75,000 bail. Horan is due back in court Nov. 19.
He was arrested shortly before 11:30 a.m. after he allegedly signed for a package at a FedEx office. Authorities said inside the package were toys stuffed with roughly 2,000 pills.
