BOUND BROOK, N.J. (AP) - Two enterprising teens who were looking to make some money shoveling snow ran afoul of a New Jersey town’s ordinance and were told by police to stop.

Matt Molinari and Eric Schnepf were handing out fliers in Bound Brook during a winter storm on Monday night.

Police Chief Michael Jannone tells the Courier News of Bridgewater (https://mycj.co/1Bnuw6s ) a resident reported a suspicious person.

Jannone says the officer told the teens it wasn’t safe to be out after a state of emergency was declared. The chief says the officer’s concern was about their safety and not that they weren’t licensed to solicit business.

Molinari tells the newspaper the police were trying to make sure everything was OK.

The teens managed to line up five jobs, earning $25 to $40 a house.
