PARAMUS, N.J. (AP) - The owner of a New Jersey pet store chain has pleaded not guilty to operating one of the stores without a license.

The Record reports (https://bit.ly/29CuIbD ) Vincent LoSacco entered the plea in Emerson municipal court Thursday. The appearance comes a day after LoSacco said he would close the Emerson store amid a dispute over his business license. He declined to comment after the hearing.

LoSacco and his pet store chain have been in disputes with various municipalities since East Brunswick’s council voted to revoke LoSacco’s business license. The decision came after the New Jersey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals filed 267 animal cruelty charges against him.

He closed his Paramus store after the discovery of more than 60 dogs in an unattended van. He has denied any wrongdoing.
