Moss Point store called a public nuisance

MOSS POINT, MS (WLOX) - MOSS POINT, Miss. (AP) - Prosecutors have gone to court saying the Little Super Convenience Store in Moss Point is a public nuisance and should be closed.

Court records show that since 2008 prosecutors have urged store owners Khonn Nghik and Ek Kuong Lee to rid the business of illegal drug activity and crime. The Hattiesburg American reported on Saturday that a hearing is scheduled Dec. 3 before Jackson County Chancellor Chuck Bordis.

The store was raided Nov. 19 and two clerks were charged with drug possession, sale and intent to distribute. Lee says any illegal drug activity is only outside the store - not inside.
