The FBI under the watchful helpful eye of JCPD raided three jewelry stores in India Square yesterday searching for evidence of credit card fraud and money laundering. Ashu Jewelers, Raja Jewelers, and Nikita's Inc. were all raided yesterday morning. Thus far authorities have been tight lipped as to what if any evidence was uncovered during the raids.
Really this is sad news. India Square is a very vibrant and thriving community. Johnny lived inside the boundaries of what is considered India Square for his first year after moving to the Garden State. We'd hate for people to look at these raids and think the restaurants and stores and bakeries along Newark Ave. are nothing but fronts for crime. It's the only 'anchor' neighborhood near Journal Square and that helps meet tax coffers for Jersey City and helps keep street crime in that area down. Until we know what happened in these cases Johnny would urge readers not to rush to judgement on this neighborhood.
Shame on those who may have done wrong here, you stain the very neighborhood you are a part of.
