The Minnesota Attorney General's Office said Tuesday that a gas station and liquor store at a troubled north Minneapolis intersection are considered nuisance properties and subject to being sued in connection with chronic and sometimes violent crime at their businesses.
An investigation of Merwin Liquors and Winner Gas Station "determined that illegal public nuisances are ongoing at the properties," Attorney General Keith Ellison's office said in a statement.
The attorneys for Hennepin County and Minneapolis assisted in the investigation, Ellison's office said.
