PATERSON, NJ - A Garfield man is facing charges after the Paterson Police Department shut down an illegal business he was allegedly running at 492 21st Ave.

According to Public Safety Director Jerry Speziale, the closure came as a result of an investigation launched following complaints from the community regarding the alleged operations at the location.

Police arrived on scene at approximately 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and reported finding that Carlos Sanchez had charged admission to patrons to watch a soccer game without the proper licenses or a certificate of occupancy. Additional summonses are expected to be issued after an inspection is conducted Monday.
