The closure came after a month-long investigation as part of a public nuisance complaint filed by the District Attorney General’s office.

During that time, agents said they were able to buy crack cocaine in the parking lot of Malone’s and illegal alcohol inside.  According to the task force, the club only has a beer license.

No arrests were made Friday, however officers say charges are expected soon.
