BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — A yeshiva school in Brooklyn was busted Monday for operating secretly despite coronavirus rules mandating remote learning, a police spokeswoman said.

A tip to 311 led police to the school on Madison Street, near Ralph Avenue, on the border of Bedford-Stuyvesant and Bushwick, the spokeswoman said.

Officers found about 60 students inside the building, according to the NYPD.

A man who was operating the school was told to close and he did so, the police spokeswoman said.

All of the students left the building and no enforcement action was taken, per the spokeswoman.
