Misdemeanor charges were filed Tuesday against an additional 10 Los Angeles non-essential businesses for allegedly operating during the Safer At Home Order.

Charges were filed Tuesday by the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office against:

— Avetik Grigoryan and Makaros Makarosya of My Smoke Shop, 22876 Ventura Blvd.;

— Arthur Papazyan of Studio City Smoke Shop, 11046 Ventura Blvd.;

— Tami Aboud, of Lincoln Tobacco, 608 Lincoln Blvd.;

— Grachiya Baltayan of Mike’s Smoke Shop, 12038 Burbank Blvd.;

— Tarik Dugam and Jake Kail of Drip ‘N Vape, 23706 Victory Blvd.;

— Nourollah Farzad and Michael Eric Solano of Bellagio Express Car Wash, 6344 Sepulveda Blvd.;

— Hungsia Yang of Spa Castle Massage, 19644 Sherman Way;

— Luis Pena of Henney’s Printing, 4166 Verdugo Road;

— Carlos Valdez of Vantage Green Professional Auto Detailing, 2700 N. Eastern Ave.; and

— Joyce Choi of Discount Beauty Supply, 8600 S. Hoover St.

The defendants were allegedly operating non-essential businesses during the Safer At Home Order, which was put in place to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Rob Wilcox, the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office director of community engagement and outreach.

Charges were filed against four other businesses earlier in April, Wilcox said.

“All non-essential businesses need to comply, without exception,” City Attorney Mike Feuer said. “The sooner we achieve maximum compliance — from businesses and residents alike — the sooner all Angelenos can get back to work and resume our normal routines.”
