NEWARK - Newark business owner Evelynn Carmona says she got an urgent call from her super Thursday saying she better get to her retail store quickly. When she arrived at her business on South Orange Avenue in Newark, she found her store had been mistakenly ransacked by the state police executing a search warrant.
Carmona says when the cops realized their error they went to the business across the hall where they arrested a man after finding drugs and cash.
Carmona says she went to the Irvington Barracks of the New Jersey State Police but her complaints were ignored, so she called News 12 New Jersey. State police told News 12 "the search warrant was executed at the proper location" and they would not elaborate further.
Carmona says she's still waiting for an apology.
