TROTWOOD, Ohio (WDTN) - An undercover operation led to a raid at a Trotwood establishment late Saturday night.
Officers served a search warrant at Deja-Vu in the 4300 block of Salem Avenue, after they made an undercover illegal purchase of alcohol.
Authorities were led to Deja-Vu after they obtained flyers that indicated alcohol would be sold there.
Police recovered liquor, beer, and a large amount of marijuana during the raid.
According to police, Deja-Vu is licensed as a banquet hall, but it has been operating as a nightclub.
"This has been a long standing problem around here. What we're trying to do is let everybody know this is not a proper place and it's not operating correctly," stated Captain John Porter of the Trotwood Police Department. "They're not operating within the scope of their zoning. They're not operating with proper permits. We're not going to tolerate that here in the City of Trotwood."
According to officials, several people are facing charges of illegal distribution of alcohol without a permit.
No patrons were cited, but the owners and operators who were there Saturday night will be facing charges.
Police are still investigating and plan to meet with the owners of the business.
