There have also been several incidents in Lakewood, including more than 35 people who were caught inside a building on Madison Avenue, and a Lakewood couple facing child endangerment charges after police found 50 people, including children, on the front lawn of a home on Alamitos Drive.
The governor commented specifically on the incidents happening in and around Lakewood.
"It's the fastest growing community in the state,” says Gov. Murphy. “If you looked at the streets of Lakewood right now, you'd see barren streets, so this is a vast minority of folks, but listen still we need 100% compliance both in Lakewood and around other communities."
