DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Dayton police shut down an operation they say was illegally selling alcohol.
Police say the house on Ravenwood Avenue near Salem Avenue was operating as an illegal bar. They say it was selling to people who are underage.
Investigators are looking into bootleg establishments that have popped up in town.
“We’ve had some recent instances of violence that occur at these boot joints after hours when legitimate legal bars close and everybody shows up at the boot joint. This boot joint was a little bit different in that it operated during the daylight hours in the middle of this residential neighborhood,” said Sgt. John Sullivan, Dayton Police Department.
The woman operating the establishment was issued a summons to appear in court.
