Nashville store raided

April 26, 2007

Nashville --  A Berrien County man is in jail after deputies raided two gas stations and his home and seized money, drugs and property.

A four-month undercover operation ended with the arrest of 43 year-old Shleisha Dave.

Investigators say during that time, an undercover officer bought 5-thousand dollars worth of crack cocaine from Dave's Lucky 7 gas station in Nashville.

Thursdau, they confiscated 25-thousand dollars, 4 ounces of crack and some marijuana at that store.

They also searched the Lucky Corner gas station on Adel Highway and Dave's home.

All those properties could soon belong to the Berrien County Sheriff's office.  "We're going to check his financial records and anything he owns that we can seize, we're going to file seizure on," says Berrien County Sheriff Jerry Brogdon.

Right now, Dave faces 27 charges including trafficking cocaine and possession with the intent to distribute.

Investigators say they might make more arrests.
