Milo's Bar and Grill in Marietta denied business license renewal


MARIETTA, Ga. -- Marietta Police have refused to renew a business's license after nearly 50 crimes were reported on the property.

Police spokesman Det. Christopher Lindsey announced Tuesday that Milo's Bar and Grill was ordered to conclude all its business by midnight on Mar. 31.

Between Feb. 11, 2011 and Mar. 20, 2014, no fewer than 49 incidents at the restaurant were reported to police. Lindsey said the final crime was a shooting on Mar. 20 that put one person in the hospital. Other reports include seven larcenies, two car thefts, two drug offenses, six hit and run cases, 14 violent altercations and the Apr. 7, 2013 murder of Tekilum Terrell.

"The sheer volume of criminal incidents at the business and the lack of cooperation by patrons and employees during the course of several criminal investigations prompted the city to disallow further operations at the location out of an abundance of caution and concern for public safety," Lindsey said in a release.

A cease and desist notification was sent to Quantria Barnes, the most recent holder of the bar's business license, Lindsey said.

Milo's Bar and Grill is located at 11 Garrison Road, near Powder Springs Street.
