NJ Teens Offering Shoveling Services Stopped By Cops Due To Town Ordinance

NJ Teens Offering Shoveling Services Stopped By Cops Due To Town Ordinance


Two high schoolers who say they were just trying to make some money are now in hot water.

As WCBS 880’s Jim Smith reported, Matt Molinari and his friend, both seniors from Bridgewater, were going door-to-door advertising their snow shoveling services in advance of the storm.

“We weren’t looking to break the law. We just didn’t know the law,” Molinari said.

But when the two crossed into Bound Brook, they were stopped by cops.

“Kind of saw like a spotlight, like a police spotlight,” he said.

Police were alerted after someone called to report a suspicious person.

Molinari said they then got a lesson in local ordinances, putting their high school shoveling business on ice.
