DA, police shut down Moss Point convenience store

MOSS POINT, MS (WLOX) -

MOSS POINT, MS (WLOX) - A Moss Point convenience store police call a "drug haven" was forced to close its doors Friday. A Jackson County judge ordered that T&T Grocery Store, also known as the Li'l Super on Highway 63, be temporarily shut down.

District Attorney Tony Lawrence and police were at the store Friday putting up closed signs on the doors and yellow tape around the building.

The D.A. filed a motion last month to close the store after narcotics agents raided the place and seized synthetic marijuana, known as Spice, along with drug paraphernalia and cash.

"We are committed to stopping illegal activity in Jackson County and that's what we are going to do," Narcotics Task Force Commander Curtis Spiers said. "If you think it is unfair, tell that to families that have been murdered in front of some of these stores and the lives that have been ruined by drug addiction."

"Moss Point is a good place, but this is a bad store in the area," Moss Point Alderman Ruby HIll said. "This bad store is gone and now we are looking for more safety in our community."

The court hearing on whether the temporary shutdown will be permanent is set for December 15th.
