    Inmates are tricky...

    Three inmates, two women charged after suboxone found pasted onto pages

    Back in February, corrections officers received information that the drug Suboxone (aka Buprenorphine) was being channeled into the Correctional Center through inmate mail.

    “Suboxone is a narcotic medication indicated for the treatment of opioid dependence and must be taken under a doctor’s care,” said Sheriff Gary Schaffer. “This medication is available in pill or film form. Treatment is designed to be given under close medical supervision and can cause breathing problems or death if not taken correctly.”

    The tip led to a full investigation. During the second week of February, a mail room officer discovered mail containing a coloring book page. The page had an Orange substance blotted on it that looked similar to watercolor paint.

    Investigators confiscated the page and sent it to the Cape May County Prosecutor’s Office Laboratory for testing. The page tested positive for Suboxone.

    Two other coloring book pages received through the mail also tested positive for the substance.

    Further investigation led to the arrests of incarcerated inmates Zachary Hirsh, Charles Markman and Paul Scipione.

    All three men are now charged with conspiracy and attempt to commit a crime.

    Hirsh’s bail is set at $50,000. Both Markman and Scipione have bail set at $15,000.

    In addition, Debbie Longo of West Wildwood was arrested then released from the Cape May County Correctional Center. She was charged with intent to distribute a controlled dangerous substance as well as intent to distribute a controlled substance in a school zone. Her bail is set at $25,000.

    Finally, a warrant was issued for the arrest of Katelyn Mosebach of Trevose, Pa., for intent to distribute a controlled dangerous substance and intent to distribute a controlled substance in a school zone. No bail has been set for her at this time.

    There was a movie about a guy who was thrown into prison (Ireland maybe?) for a crime he did not commit. Darned if I can remember the title of the movie. The guy and his bud somehow get in to a hookers pad and steal her cash, blow the money and get caught with some of it going home after an IRA bombing. Anyway they end up in prison...his dad too, and the Jamaicans smuggle in lsd soaked into puzzle pieces.
    Just pay your dues, and be quiet :-)

      I have never worked in corrections, and have never investigated a crime that occurred within a jail, so please forgive this question:

      What exactly is the purpose of setting bail for an already-incarcerated perp? Why not just remand him?
      The academy teaches you skills, the street gives you experience, but it all comes down to your instinct.

        Their sentences might be nearing completion.
