1805 Ultra Lounge owner Anthony Dewayne Powell was booked on an outstanding felony warrant this morning at 9:02 a.m., after his club was raided and padlocked overnight stemming from over 84 police calls for service.
The arrest warrant was issued Tuesday morning in preparation for the raid. The probable cause came from an interview with detectives in May of 2018, during which Anthony Powell signed a written consent form to search the club property, after an incident had occurred there. During the interview, Powell was asked if any firearms were at the property, and he disclosed there was a .357 caliber revolver under the drawer of the desk inside his office. It was located and seized.
Powell is a convicted felon, pleading guilty to possession w/intent to sell cocaine in 2007, sale of a schedule II in 2000, sale of cocaine in 1999, and aggravated assault twice in 1999. Powell posted a $5,000 bond, and was released this morning at 11:35 a.m.
