HANOVER TOWNSHIP — A South Plainfield man was wearing nothing but a robe when he coughed and sneezed on items at Quick Chek, authorities charged.

Hanover Township Police Officer Daniel Acquaro arrested Mr. Raymond Bukowski, a 55-year-old from South Plainfield for disorderly conduct. Officer Acquaro responded to the Quick Chek on Ridgedale Avenue for a report of an individual not wearing a mask and coughing and sneezing over products, on June 20.

Upon arrival, Officer Acquaro was directed by the store manager to a male wearing a robe who was attempting to use the self-checkout register.

After a brief investigation, the male later identified as Mr. Bukowski was arrested and charged with lewdness and disorderly conduct. He was released pending his court date.
