Important Message From Middle Township PoliceConta

The Middle Township Police Department is attempting to locate anyone who purchased Kerosene at the Riggins Gas Station, located at 401 Route 9 South, Cape May Court House, between April 24th and May 10th, 2017. 

On April 24th, a delivery of gas was accidentally placed into the kerosene tank at that location.  Since then approximately 85 gallons of the kerosene mixed with gas has been sold.  It is extremely important that this mixture is not used as it is an extreme fire hazard, especially if used in kerosene heaters.   Through license plates we have identified several people who have purchased the mixture, but have been unable to notify them as of this release.   

Anyone who may have purchased kerosene from the Riggins in Cape May Court House between April 24th and May 10th should contact the Middle Township Police Department immediately at 609-465-8700.  The Riggins Gas Station asks that anyone who purchased this mixture return it to that location or, if you are unable to do so, call the main office at 856-825-7600.  

UPDATE:  Riggins announced a recall notice on May 9th for kerosene purchased at its Cape May Courthouse station between April 24th and May 7th. During this time approximately 81 gallons were sold to 13 individuals, some of whom purchased the kerosene multiple times. Thus far, about half of the gallons sold have been returned to the station, and  customers received a refund or replacement kerosene free of charge. Riggins disposed of the kerosene returned to the station in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. Riggins has worked in close collaboration with Middle Township Police Department throughout this process and commends the department on their efforts in contacting these individuals.
