A man in Brooklyn was arrested after he was found hoarding N95 masks. In a time of such crisis, especially in New York it is amazing to me that this guy would be so selfish. Baruch Feldheim is facing charges of assault after he tried to cough on an officer and also for making false statements to the feds on Sunday outside his Borough Park home where he allegedly peddled and stored massive amounts of N95 respirator masks. Feldheim is also accused of price-gouging.
He’s suspected of selling a New Jersey doctor about 1,000 of the masks for $12,000, a markup of roughly 700 percent. He had roughly 8 pallets of masks. A doctor who had purchased masks from the man said that he had a large enough stock supply of hand sanitizers, Clorox wipes, chemical cleaning supply agents, and surgical supplies, to outfit an entire hospital. #SMH
