The state of New Jersey has announced a new round of citizens who have been charge for defying Governor Murphy's lockdown orders. It seems business owners are getting desperate to open up shop as all five of the people charged were previously warned by police to shut down before the cops heard more complaints and came back to take action.
Governor Murphy recently announced his extension of all executive orders issued by the Emergency Health Powers Act (which was originally enacted on March 9th) through June 6th.
Here are the five people charged:
Anthony Monte, 50, of Jackson, was charged by Point Pleasant police with opening his E-Cig and vape shop and offering curbside pickup.
Thong Q. Tran, 45, of Fairless Hills, Pennsylvania, charged May 4 in Hamilton for opening his Diamond Nail Salon.
Janice Lauria, 52, charged on May 5 by Point Pleasant Borough police for opening her Anytime Fitness for people to work out in. She was previously charged with the same thing in late April.
Dragan Dinic, 50, of Emerson, charged May 5 by Teaneck police for opening the Teaneck Hand Car Wash.
Sharda Ramjug, 61, of Jersey City, charged May 2 in Roselle for bringing in customers through the back door of Michelle's Beauty Supply.
These violations are considered disorderly persons offenses and the people facing them are looking at up to six months in jail and $1000 in fines if convicted.
