Nuisance restaurant raided

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - Shelby County District Attorney Amy Weirich and Shelby County Sheriff Bill Oldham raided and shut down Blu Restaurant and Grill, Tuesday night.

Action News 5 got video of officers going in the club and going through cars. Officers even used dogs that appeared to hit on certain cars but nothing was found.

The club was shut down because the DA and Sheriff said drug buys were made in the club from patrons and employees.

One ecstasy pill from a DA and one cocaine purchase in the club as well as five occasions of marijuana purchases.

The real problem appears to be calls to the business. Investigators said since January the Sheriff's office or police have responded to the restaurant 74 times for fighting robbery and aggravated assaults.
