Seven people have been arrested on drug charges at a Dundalk night club after more than 100 Baltimore County police officers raided the place last week, police said.
Culminating a nearly 15-month investigation, the police carried out a search warrant at the Black Hole Rock Club on German Hill Road at about 10:30 p.m. on Aug. 11, arresting the club manager and six others. The officers, accompanied by a representative of the Baltimore County State's Attorney's office, also seized an array of illegal drugs: marijuana, methamphetamine, ecstasy, ketamine and psilocybin mushrooms.
A New Jersey man was charged with drug distribution, and a Virginia man was charged with possession with intent to distribute. Four patrons were charged with possession of drugs and paraphernalia.
More people could be charged, as police test substances they found being carried by six other club patrons.
The club's liquor license is held by Trikeriotis' wife, Joyce, who has not been charged with any crime. The county Board of Liquor License Commissioners and the police department are working together to decide what, if any, further action can be taken against the club, including the possibility of closing it permanently. According to a police department statement, the business was "declared condemned."
