CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Cincinnati police boarded up an Exxon Mobil gas station Thursday.
Police say the gas station, located at 110 West Mitchell Avenue, had “chronic nuisance issues”.
Capt. Craig Gregoire says officers were also dispatched there for shooting and drug investigations.
Capt. Gregoire says police tried to work with the owners several months ago to try to improve the business, but he says the owners did not want to take the recommendations.
The city took the matter to court and police received an order to board up the business.
“Right now, Nov. 16 will be the trial to have the business permanently closed, but right now, this is a win for the Spring Grove community, the St. Bernard community, the police agencies of Cincinnati police and the St. Bernard. I believe by closing this business, we can bring viability to citizens in this area,” Capt. Gregoire said.
