An officer spotted the limousine in the parking lot, 1950 East Auto Centre Drive, around 2 p.m. Police searched the vehicle after making contact with the four men who were all inside the vehicle and that is when officers discovered the drugs.

"An officer checked some people in a limousine and ended up finding … three ounces of methamphetamine," said Sergeant Scott Strong. Police also found Ecstasy and other various drugs.

Fyi, Lann is no longer an owner of Mickys. He was bought out quite some time ago and not involved with the bar at all.
