Dentist The Source of Medical Waste On A NJ Beach

WYNNEWOOD, Pa. - September 4, 2008 - (WPVI) -- There is a strong indication that the 150 syringes and pieces of medical waste that washed up on the beaches in Avalon, New Jersey two weekends ago were dumped by a Main Line dentist.

According to a search warrant, police say Dr. Thomas McFarland, of Wynnewodd, admitted to Avalon police Tuesday that he dumped the medical waste in Townsend Inlet between Sea Isle City and Avalon.

McFarland owns a house on the canal in Avalon Manor.

The court document indicates he used a small boat docked behind the house to take the waste out and dump it.
