More arrests coming in Lakewood | Di Ionno
The arrests of a Lakewood rabbi, his wife, and several others Monday is just the “first wave” of a federal and state crackdown on public assistance fraud in the Orthodox community.
The second wave is planned for as early as dawn Wednesday when authorities are scheduled to move in on three other couples, according to law enforcement sources. After that, warrants will be served to an unknown number of others by Friday and the investigation is continuing. And growing.
“There are more (arrests) coming,” the source said, who was not authorized to speak on the record. “This is far from over.”
It may be just the beginning. There is a new scrutiny on Lakewood as the town continues to make headlines. Money-laundering indictments, a school system in financial freefall, unabated development. And now welfare fraud charges.
