Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department shuts down illegal night club operating inside west side home



Indianapolis, Indiana – Indianapolis police closed an illegal nightclub that was housed in a house on the west side of the city on Friday.

Officers from the Northwest District of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department received over 40 reports in 2023 regarding disturbances including loud music, assaults, and even gunfire in the 3000 block of Lupine Drive. That’s close to the crossroads of N. High School Rd. and W. 34th St. in a residential area.

According to the police, it was found that the house was operating as a full-service nightclub, which infuriated and alarmed many of the residents for their safety.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Indianapolis Alchohol Task Force carried out a search warrant at the residence on January 19 with the aid of officers from multiple IMPD districts. A news release stated that over 1,200 bottles of alcohol, drugs, money, and paperwork supporting the nightclub operation were seized.

Many residents expressed gratitude for police efforts stating, “We just want our quiet, safe neighborhood back, and we hope what you accomplished today will go a long way in bringing it back.”

The community is reminded by IMPD that it is against the law to sell or serve alcohol without a valid license or permit.

Anyone with information regarding this event may email or call the IMPD Nuisance and Abatement Office’s Detective Tiffany Mastin at 317-327-6169. The inquiry is still ongoing.
