LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Detectives recovered marijuana, guns, cash and a digital scale at a liquor store.

On Tuesday, July 16, LMPD conducted a search warrant at Do Boyz Liquors and the adjoining business, The Kingdom Nightclub, on Taylor Boulevard at Arcade Avenue in south Louisville near Churchill Downs.

Neighbors near the business say it was no secret, the joint operation on the corner wasn't just selling alcohol.

"We don't need that, we need to get rid of all these drugs out here in this world," said one neighbor. 

Officers found a large amount of marijuana packaged for sale along with two handguns, $1300 in cash and a digital scale used for measuring packages of drugs. Four people were arrested after the search warrant was completed.

One suspect is Antonio Anthony, 28, who is a convicted felon. The other people arrested included the owner of the business—Darrellitha Oldham, 32; Derrick Parker, 23; and Eugene Schooler, 25.

Neighbors believe drug deals inside the store have been going on for quite some time. "When you go by up there and you see cars sitting in the parking lot that have license tags from Florida, Chicago, New York, New Jersey, Illinois, you know, I mean people don't just come in from out of town to go to a bar and drink," said a neighbor who did not want to be identified.

The owner also faces heightened charges because of the proximity to Frayser Elementary School.

Even after four arrests, the business is still open and neighbors hope that changes soon.

"This is a neighborhood that we've worked very hard to get it look like it does," said one neighbor. "We've got decent neighbors in here and everything and we just don't want to put up with it."

The four were charged with trafficking marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia designed for preparing a controlled substance. Police charged them with trafficking a controlled substance near a school. Anthony was also charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
