DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Dayton Police shut down a reported illegal bar.
Police were called to the 100 block of South Euclid Street Saturday after 3:30 a.m. after a complaint about a possible illegal liquor establishment.
When officers arrived, they found a large amount of people coming and going from the back of the home and loud music blaring.
Police said a person was standing outside of the back door acting as a security guard wearing a shirt that said “security” on the back and a logo with “A & B Lounge” on the front. Police said the same logo was painted on the kitchen counter in the home where two industrial friers were set up.
Police knocked on the door and met with the owner who invited officers inside. According to police, the home had been turned into a bar and restaurant.
Police report people were standing shoulder to shoulder inside. Officers said there was a woman who was cooking fried chicken as people stood in line for food. Police said there were numerous bottles of liquor and beer and a poster listing drink prices. Police said there were also televisions, a dart board, speakers, a DJ, and a pool table.
Police cleared the home of all patrons and took inventory of all of the alcohol. The owner of the building was issued a summons arrest because police said he did not have a permit to operate the establishment. Police also completed numerous public nuisance forms.
