NEW JERSEY — Two teens who were looking to make some extra cash shoveling snow were told by police to stop.
Matt Molinari and Eric Schnepf, both 18, were walking around a neighborhood Monday evening, handing out fliers promoting their service, when they were pulled over by police and told to stop.
The story was shared on a popular Bound Brook Facebook group by a resident who saw Schnepf being questioned by police after coming to his door.
“Are you kidding me? Our generation does nothing but complain about his generation being lazy and not working for their money,” he wrote on Bound Brook NJ Events’ page.
“Here’s a couple kids who take the time to print up flyers, walk door to door in the snow, and then shovel snow for some spending money. And someone calls the cops and they’re told to stop?”
Bound Brook, like many municipalities in the state and country, has a law against unlicensed solicitors and peddlers.
