Ex-chemist’s husband warned prosecutor she was a liar

New details in lab scandal

The husband of disgraced chemist Annie Dookhan warned a prosecutor that his wife was a chronic liar in ­ominous text messages nearly two years before she was finally caught improperly removing drug evidence from a state lab, according to new State ­Police documents obtained by the Globe.

Surren Dookhan has not spoken publicly about his wife’s free fall from prolific chemist to the defendant at the heart of the biggest law enforce­ment scandal in recent Massachusetts history.
