Police Chief Uncovers Source of Mysterious Music Plaguing Towns Along Delaware River

Penns Grove Police Chief John Stranahan took it upon himself to figure out the source of the music that was prompting multiple 911 calls.

After police in Delaware and New Jersey received complaints about mysterious music from towns located along the Delaware River, one New Jersey chief set out to find the source himself. 

The News Journal reports the heavy bass was heard Dec. 24 in some New Jersey towns. Similar sounds were heard in the same towns in October. A flood of 911 callers were told it was out of jurisdiction, so Penns Grove Police Chief John Stranahan drove over to Wilmington himself.

Every few blocks, he got out of the car and listened. His ears finally led him to a skatepark at the confluence of the Christiana River and Brandywine Creek, where he found four men and a van with a massive sound system.

Stranahan says the men fled, but he just wanted to let them know the music was disturbing people.
