Great job Hopatcong PD, Roxbury PD and all that played a part in this operation. I am pleased to see those that have been dealing for years will finally be brought to justice and start paying for the lives they have helped to ruin.

How can you write on your facebook that you are so saddened by the lives that will be ruined by this but are so excited that the mugshots (!!) are up? You people are sick animals. Get a life.

Great job. Hopefully the correction in the schools will happen to eliminate the problems. Then I will stop thinking of moving out of town. One drug bust at a time, our town can get better.
