A Brooklyn man is behind bars and in BIG trouble!
Baruch Feldheim, 43, is accused of selling a NJ doctor about 1,000 of the masks for $12,000, a markup of roughly 700%. Additionally, Feldheim who is claiming to be infected with the coronavirus coughed on FBI agents who were investigating him for hoarding medical supplies, the US Attorney’s Office said Monday.
He was arrested outside his Borough Park home where he allegedly peddled and stored massive amounts of N95 respirator masks, federal officials said. The NJ doctor reported to investigators that Feldheim was allegedly hoarding enough medical supplies “to outfit an entire hospital.” The materials included hand sanitizers, Clorox wipes, chemical cleaning agents and surgical supplies.
Feldheim is now facing charges of assault and making false statements to the feds.
