Judging from the smorgasbord of drugs confiscated over the weekend, Atlantic City Police could hang a sign on their evidence locker that reads:
The Grateful Dead-inspired jam band played Friday, Saturday and Sunday (Halloween) in "America's Playground," and authorities, including immigration/customs agents and members of the county prosecutor's office, collected everything from magic mushrooms and acid to the anesthetic ketamine
and prescription pills.
They even seized Rice Krispies Treats with cannabis
Can you say, "Snap, Crackle and Pot
," boys and girls?
The total street value was put at $278,310, which doesn't include the $12,251 in cash seized as suspected proceeds of illegal drug
No, it doesn't exactly rival the recent Mexican-border bust that intercepted more than 100 tons of weed
, valued at more than $300 million.
But it quite a haul for in, and around, Boardwalk Hall.
Enough to create an illustrated field guide to meds and mind-altering substances.
Arrested were 63 men and women from 15 states, plus one Philadelphia 15-year-old who allegedly resisted arrest after distributing nitrous oxide
. Most of the accused were given summonses for possession and released. A detective "assaulted with nitrous oxide" while making two arrests was treated and released from a hospital, and a captain's hand was injured as he tried to subdue a male suspect, according to the police news release.
Here's the list of drugs gathered by A.C. police:
