Minnesota Pizzeria/Pot Business Busted!
On the outside, Papa Dimitri's Classic Pizza and Ice Cream looks like your average neighborhood pizza shop. However, St. Paul police discovered that the establishment, which is reputably barely ever open, actually conducted a secret illegal marijuana trafficking business.
According to police, the pizzeria has been under investigation since last summer after receiving a complaint about the place barely being open, having a lack of heat despite their functional pizza oven and employees typically eating at a nearby burger restaurant rather than their place of employment.
Last Friday, St. Paul police charged owner Ryan Dimitri Brooks Sr., 32, his mother, 61, his grandmother, 82, and his 24 yearold girlfriend with drug and firearms offenses.
