The FBI was seen on video raiding a man's home and then arresting him. The suspect is accused of hoarding supplies such as medical masks and also allegedly coughed on the agents.
He's a 43-year-old named Baruch Feldheim and he will likely be charged with assault and making false statements to feds.
He was allegedly storing and possibly selling/peddling N95 masks, the ones that are in dire need by medical professionals.
The suspect also got caught selling masks at gouged price with a markup of almost 700%, according to Fox News.
Their story says he was suspected of selling 1,000 masks for about $12,000 - a huge price gouging for sure.
It gets worse.
The suspect sent another doctor to a repair shop in Irvington, NJ, to pick up an order that contained medical supplies. "There, the doctor reported to investigators that Feldheim was allegedly hoarding enough medical supplies “to outfit an entire hospital.”
Materials included: hand sanitizers, Clorox wipes, chemical cleaning supply agents and surgical supplies."
But wait! There's more.
The same suspect tried selling gowns to a nurse and also had a delivery sent to his home. That delivery contained eight pallets of protective face masks.
Witnesses reported numerous people walking to the man's home and leaving with medical supplies.
Feldheim then allegedly lied to FBI agents regarding his possession and sale of medical supplies.
He falsely told the agents that he worked for a company that bought and sold PPEs and that he never took physical custody of the materials.
Following Feldheim’s arrest, the FBI Monday night raided a warehouse on Pennsylvania Avenue in the industrial section of Linden, N.J. that housed Feldhim’s suspected stash of 80,000 masks. a source said.
His assault charge will stem from him coughing on agents and telling them he was infected.Source: foxnews
