Bags of Heroin And Crazy Clowns – Today’s Roundup

If you’re going to smuggle heroin, go big. At least, that appears to be what a Cape May ferry rider tried to do earlier this month. Unfortunately for her (and presumably her future customers) some bright spark from the Delaware River and Bay Authority asked to search her bag, at which point apparently the lady with the heavy handbag confessed, “You got me, it’s drugs … it’s heroin.” Only in South Jersey.

Meanwhile, the creepy clown craze is spreading apace throughout our area. PhillyVoice’s Kevin Shelly analyzes what exactly bothers us about clowns and spoke with EHT Halloween experts, Spirit Halloween, to get their fantastic smackdown to the new fad. “Spirit Halloween does not encourage or associate with the recent clown sightings, and we do not comment on ongoing police investigations,” said media manager Trisha Lombardo. So there you go.

Here’s some more local news from the last 24 hours:

Atlantic Medical Imaging (AMI) broke ground in Egg Harbor Township on Tuesday for their new state-of-the-art flagship facility. The official ground-breaking ceremony was held on Tuesday to celebrate the construction of AMI’s new, almost 15,000 square-foot imaging center.


 A woman trying to board a ferry at the North Cape May terminal earlier this month was found with 250 bags of heroin, the Delaware River and Bay Authority said Tuesday. Dawn Corcoran, 45, of Lower Township, was trying to get on a Cape May-Lewes Ferry boat to Lewes, Delaware, scheduled to leave at 2:30 p.m. Oct. 1. DRBA Patrolman David Santiago tried to search her bag for security purposes, according to a statement.
