TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - A North Toledo Bar was the scene of a drug raid early on Saturday morning by dozens of local and state law enforcement officers.
The raid at the Lion's Den on Lagrange Street however came up mostly empty-handed in the search for illicit drugs.
Only one alleged drug arrest has been confirmed from the raid and that suspect, according to witnesses, was a man who not in the bar but found in his car in an adjacent parking lot.
Other people in the club were arrested, but on non-drug related warrants.
The owner of the bar, Sam Wallace tells WTOL 11 be believes the raid was unjustified and that his bar is a target of police harassment.
Toledo Police, however, contend that undercover officers have made prior purchases for drugs at the bar which is what triggered a request for a search warrant.
The Lion's Den remains open for business and the owner says he was not cited by liquor control agents for any major violations.
