PENNSVILLE, N.J. (CBS) — Mysterious music in the middle of the night is plaguing several South Jersey communities, and where this music is coming from has law enforcement agencies perplexed.

It’s a noise that’s plagued Salem County residents along the Delaware River for months.

“It’s just a severe bass thumping,” said Bruce Hampton, of Pennsville.

Hampton’s wife, Carol, took video about a week-and-a-half ago from the riverfront in Pennsville where you can hear above the gentle lapping waves, a cross-river audio invasion that’s driving people nuts.

“Anytime between 3 a.m. and 5 a.m., it could be any kind of music, usually it’s like a loud beat,” said Hampton.

During the month of October, police in Pennsville and nearby towns received nearly 60 complaints, but nobody knows where exactly the music is coming from. Police in Delaware can’t find the source and the Coast Guard told police it’s not a ship. The best anyone can guess, it’s a person or people with cars in an industrial area.

“I think it’s a group of individuals that have custom speaker systems in their cars and they’re meeting at certain places and times, and they could be competing to see who has the best speaker system,” said Pennsville Police Chief Allen Cummings.

Cummings says his family has been woken up early in the morning to the music, which he believes is related to a similar noise complaint coming from South Philadelphia over the summer. The music has not been heard this week, so maybe they’ve finally pulled the plug.

“I think it’s funny, but unfortunately some people are getting woken up by it,” said Hampton. “But other than that, I think it’s a good prank, it’ll be interesting if they ever catch them.”

“With Monday being a holiday, who knows, maybe they are going to meet up again,” said Cummings.

    It’s that noise heard all over the word the past several years

  2. Tony Oberley says:

    Such difficult problems faced by the liberal elite. I’m crying.

  3. Kevin McInturff says:

    It’s not music it is the sound of a toad fish. See the story about a houseboat colony in Sausalito, across the mouth of the bay from San Francisco August 1985 which had the same problem.

    You do know that the dark cabal have secret technology to mess you up with. OH yeah, those trumpet sounds back in 2012 was made from DARPA. Acoustic attacks ( cuban diplomats) . You are made up of light color and sound and guess what.. the elite want to attack you with sound. Yes. there are gangstalkers that sit in their cars with their equipment, but more than likely the music you are hearing has been played before: here you go: Remember this? Yes.. there is a problem. It military grade weaponry. Just like California is under assault from the fires. DEW. That sun is not your friend. It is a weapon from NASA. So, are we going go grow up or play this game on the planet? Look up the patent information from NASA. . sun simulator or sun illuminator. The police might want to check with their local masonic lodges and tell them to knock it off if they want to sleep at night.

    You take that little gadget that instantly tells you where a gun shot came from, let Mr. Spock re-program it. Now use it to see where the noise is coming from.

  6. Vincent Ardizzone says:

    The idiots don’t know how to use an audio detector which shows an increase in signal strength as you approach the source of the sound?

  7. Chuck Churn says:

    Give Tony Soprano back his deposit and this will probably stop.

  8. Vox Veritas says:

    Anyone know Katy Perry’s phone number? The cops want it.

  9. Umberto Cellini says:

    Wakandans or Aztecs.

  10. Hopefully, these people who are playing this annoying noise are seriously damaging their hearing. It would be nice if they were totally deaf by the time they reached 50-years-old!

  11. John Beargrass says:

    sounds like messicans or igglets

  12. Robert Latterman says:
