A combination of complaints from residents and observations by Erie Police led to the bar being investigated.
Pennsylvania State Police say the club had been operating without a liquor license. Officers raided the building at 2:45 Sunday morning. They seized nearly $2200, 10 liters of liquor, and 2.5 gallons of malt or brewed beverages.
Erie Police, fire, and code enforcement assisted State Police with the investigation. Criminal charges are expected.
