HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) -

The owner of Mahogany's restaurant has turned herself in to police after a warrant was issued for her arrest.

Liz Rogers had a warrant out for her arrest for a $3,000 debt. Court records say she was subpoenaed to appear for a judgement debtor's exam and didn't show up.

Rogers turned herself into the Butler County Jail at around noon on Tuesday, but posted full bond and has been released.

Mahogany's is opening a new location at the Banks in downtown Cincinnati. Last month, Cincinnati city council approved nearly $1 million in grants and loans to help open the restaurant.

Rogers is also under scrutiny due to unpaid taxes. She says she is currently paying off a $49,223 tax lien to the IRS. Rogers says that these unpaid taxes come from another business she owned, and the City of Cincinnati was aware of the taxes when they approved the grants and loans.
