Police Bust Ring Allegedly Smuggling Drug-Laced Children's Coloring Books

Police Bust Ring Allegedly Smuggling Drug-Laced Children's Coloring Books

Three inmates and two others were caught red-handed by New Jersey cops after they were allegedly found smuggling drugs into jail by painting substances onto children’s pictures.

Police told the New York Daily News that the group tried to dupe Cape May County Jail guards by dissolving the drugs into a paste for coloring use. They painted drawings of Disney characters such as Snow White and Cinderella -- and in two instances labeled them “To Daddy” -- hoping authorities would think they were done by a child.

Colorings submitted to a drug testing lab brought back positive results for Suboxone, a drug used to treat addictions to pain-killers.

Authorities uncovered the operation through an anonymous tip.

Members of the group were charged with conspiracy, attempt to commit a crime, attempt to distribute a controlled substance and intent to distribute a controlled substance in a school zone.

N.J. cops bust jailhouse ring that smuggled drugs dissolved in paint in children's coloring books

New Jersey cops have busted an enterprising jailhouse crew that used children's coloring books to smuggle in drugs undetected.

Three inmates and two others are facing charges after officers at the Cape May County Correctional Center discovered that pages of coloring books sent through inmate mail were smeared with paint containing Suboxone, a prescription drug.

The drugs had been dissolved into a paste and then painted onto three children's pictures, which depicted Disney characters such as Snow White and Cinderella, police said.

Two of the pages were scrawled with crayon and said "To Daddy," in an attempt to dupe guards into thinking a child drew them.

"In my 38 years of law enforcement, I've never seen anything like this," Cape May County Sheriff Gary Schaffer told the Press of Atlantic City Monday.

Suboxone is used to treat addiction to opiods, or pain-killers.

The bust was the result of a two-month investigation after a guard received an anonymous tip from an inmate about the scheme, Officer Kourtney Perry told the Daily News.

Guards in the mail room were told to keep an eye out for pages splashed with orange coloring.

In February, Officer William Coombs found a page with orange blotches and submitted it to a drug lab for testing last month, Perry said.

After it tested positive for Suboxone, officers found two more pages.

"It looked like paint, unless you knew what you were looking for," Perry said.

Cape May County inmates Zachary Hirsch and Charles Markham were charged with conspiracy and attempt to commit a crime.

A third inmate, Paul Scipione, who was recently transferred from the jail to state prison, was also charged.

In addition, Debbie Longo of West Wildwood, N.J., was charged with intent to distribute a controlled substance and intent to distribute a controlled substance in a school zone.

Longo is Markham's mother and had sent one of the drug-soaked pages to Scipione before he was transferred, Perry told The News.

A fifth suspect, Katelyn Mosebach, of Trevose, Pa., has also been charged.

She is expected to turn herself in to police later this week, Perry said.

So they were smuggling in medicine used to treat addictions to pain-killers?
Title is very misleading, makes you think they were smuggling in recreational drugs instead of medicine to help.

Heroin was used to treat morphine addictions, doesn't mean its not recreational.
