Convenience store declared public nuisance

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Officials have declared a convenience store a public nuisance.

The Stop & Shop on South Mendenhall Road near the intersection of Knight Arnold Road has been closed.

Memphis Police Department said officers were called to the location more than 400 times during the last two years.

Marijuana, Ecstasy, and Xanax, along with three handguns, were found at the location.

District Attorney General Amy Weirich said she tried to work with the owners of the Stop and Shop to get the crime at the location cleaned up, but ultimately, she was forced to declare the location a public nuisance.
