By Press Release

NORTH CAPE MAY – Prior to the Oct. 1, 2:30 p.m. southbound ferry departure from the terminal here, Delaware River and Bay Authority police made an arrest of a Lower Township woman for alleged heroin possession: 250 baggies of heroin hidden in her purse.
According to police, Pfc. David Santiago was screening foot passengers at the security checkpoint when the subject approached. As he opened her purse to search it for security reasons, Dawn Corcoran, 45, of Lower Township reportedly grabbed the bag with both hands and tried to flee to the women’s restroom.
Officers later discovered a tightly wrapped rectangular cube of black tape.
Corcoran initially told police it was a phone charger, but later stated, “You got me, its drugs, it’s heroin.”
Santiago contacted New Jersey State Police to inform them of the incident at the terminal.
An additional arrest warrant was issued for Corcoran for parole violation.
Corcoran was transported to Lower Township Police Department for arraignment before the municipal court judge on several drug-related charges.
Her bail was set at $50,000. She was remanded to Cape May County Correctional Center in lieu of bail.
The charges and allegations contained in the complaint are merely accusations and the defendant is considered innocent unless and until proven guilty. This report is based on information received from law enforcement.
