Baruch Feldheim, 43, was arrested on Monday for allegedly making false statements to the FBI and hoarding desperately needed medical supplies, including nearly 200,000 N95 masks which he was selling at a 700% markup.
When the FBI came to arrest him, he allegedly coughed on their agents and claimed he had the coronavirus.
According to a Department of Justice press release, Feldheim was hoarding enough medical supplies "to outfit an entire hospital."
From The Department of Justice, "Brooklyn Man Arrested for Assaulting FBI Agents and Making False Statements About His Possession and Sale of Scarce Medical Equipment":
NEWARK, N.J. – A Brooklyn man was arrested today for allegedly coughing on FBI agents while claiming to have COVID-19, and with lying to them about his accumulation and sale of surgical masks, medical gowns, and other medical supplies, U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito announced.Here's video allegedly showing the FBI seizing box after box of 3M N95 masks from Feldheim's apartment:
The cases look identical to this one which says it holds 160 masks:
"Following Feldheim's arrest, the FBI on Monday night raided a warehouse on Pennsylvania Avenue in an industrial section of Linden, NJ, that housed Feldheim's suspected stash of 80,000 masks [Update below, feds are claiming they seized nearly 200,000], a source said," the New York Post reported. "Mask-wearing agents and other workers placed the eight pallets of medical supplies into a box truck."
You can see photos of the massive pallets seized from his warehouse on the Post's website.
Interestingly, another man by the name of George Falcone was recently arrested in New Jersey for allegedly coughing towards a woman just to rile her and yet he was charged with terroristic threats and faces seven years in prison while Feldheim here who coughed at the FBI and endangered the public at large due to hoarding and price gouging thousands of desperately needed N95 masks faces only six.
Incidentally, the New York Times made a front page story out of a guy buying 17,700 bottles of hand sanitizer but they buried Feldheim's story which is conservatively 10 times worse.
I wonder why?
UPDATE, April 1: It sure is amazing how the media couldn't care less about what may be the biggest price gouging scandal of the entire coronavirus crisis:
The Times did cover the story but they buried it in a "live updates" thread rather than give it its own page.
From The New York Post, April 2, "Feds distribute 200K N95 masks seized from coronavirus hoarder":
Federal officials said Thursday they are giving nearly 200,000 N95 respirator masks to New Jersey and New York after confiscating them from a hoarder.Follow InformationLiberation on Twitter, Facebook, Gab and Minds.
