FREMONT, Mich. -- A police investigation that began last Christmas has culminated in a drug raid on a Pizza Hut store in Fremont.

According to Newaygo County Today, the Newaygo County Sheriff's Department and Michigan State Police tracked numerous marijuana and cocaine purchases conducted in the store. Officials also observed employees using drugs on the premises.

Arrested and charged with delivery of narcotics in the May 20 sting were Patricia Taylor, 47, the store's manager, and employees Danielle Ebert, 21, and Lori Siegel, 41.

Fremont Police Detective Sgt. Steve Heiss told the newspaper that during the investigation, officers informed Pizza Hut's district and corporate offices about the suspected drug activity, but that they received inadequate cooperation.

"Their attitude seemed to range from disinterest to, 'What can we do about it?' " Heiss told the newspaper. "As a result of that we are in the process of filing forfeiture papers on the property as of last Friday."

According to Heiss, a new manager is operating the store.
