The owner of a western Kentucky pizza joint and a suntan parlor is suing Hopkinsville police over drug raids at his businesses.
Luther Anderson, who owns Pizz-A-Roma and Sunkissed Tanning, which share a building in Hopkinsville, claims in the lawsuit that police officers searched the building shared by the two businesses without a search warrant.
Officers raided the building on April 24. Police say they seized 1,215 packages of synthetic drugs and 44 cases of glass pipes.
Anderson also owns The ToyBox in Oak Grove, which Hopkinsville and Oak Grove police raided April 25. Officers say they took two plastic containers of synthetic drugs.
Hopkinsville Police Chief Guy Howie told the Kentucky New Era he stands behind the officers and “the professional investigations that they did.”
