Cape May County, Mar 30 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Officials of the Cape May County Correctional Center had no idea that drugs were being smuggled right into the facility. The interesting part of the whole incident is that the drugs were being pushed using the mail system of the correctional facility.

Authorities at the facility were alerted to the breach by an informant which led to the revelation of how the narcotic was being smuggled into the facility. Investigation at the facility revealed that the narcotic, Suboxone which is also referred to as Buprenorphine was being concealed in a coloring book page.

An officer at the mail room discovered the concealment and further investigations led to the discovery of two more pages. When the pages were taken to the Cape May County Prosecutor’s Office Laboratory for testing, it turned out that the pages contained Suboxone.

Three inmates - Zachary Hirsh, Charles Markman and Paul Scipione- were picked up and charged with conspiracy and attempt to commit crime while two other civilians have also been charged. One of the civilians, Debbie Longo of West Wildwood was arrested but released on a $25,000 bail while the other suspect, Katelyn Mosebach of Trevose, Pa. remains at large.
