Cops bust five in Six Flags hand stamp forgery scheme
Written by Robert Niles
Great article from New Jersey today:Tweet
Police arrested five men at Six Flags Great Adventure Sunday, following a tip from park security.
The men were found to have equipment to make and check hand stamps to gain entry into the park, [Sgt. Thomas] Hratko said. Included in the findings were hand stamps, latex gloves, baby powder and an ultraviolet light, Hratko said.
The men face charges of forgery, conspiracy and possession of a forgery device. But, as they say, that's not all....
Seems like the boys enjoyed a little, um, extra entertainment along with faking their way into the park. Cops found pot, cocaine *and* Ecstasy on one of the suspects and all five face various drug charges. Which, of course, makes the reported time of the arrest on Sunday afternoon all the more appropriate... 4:20 p.m.
