“Crime on the Bay” Mary-Beth Brophy, Ocean County College
Did you know that the advent of oyster planting in the waterways around Tuckerton led to both a murder and a Supreme Court ruling? That a cache of bootleg liquor seized in 1923 prompted one Ocean County Sheriff to accuse his predecessor of embezzlement? That the Keeper of the Little Egg Coast Guard Station (now the Marine Field Station) was court-martialed for colluding with rum runners as a result of a confession he claimed was coerced? That there is some truth to the legend of the Barnegat Pirates? Join storyteller Mary-Beth Brophy for an hour of tales about what happened when the government sought to control how baymen in and around Little Egg Harbor could use the ocean.
