St. Louis Today reported:
There was a 15 year-old girl at the house at the time of the arrest.
The house, in the 8800 block of Snowhill Court, was raided early Friday morning by the county’s tactical operations, K-9, and special investigating units.
The address is listed as the location of the “Yes We Can Social Club” on the Missouri Secretary of State’s website. It was incorporated in January for the purposes of “recreation” and says that assets from the corporation would be given “to another charitable organization,” according to paperwork for the club on the site. Latroy L. Simmons is listed as the club’s registered agent.
A police spokesman said he didn’t know if the social club had anything to do with what police found last week at the home.
Some weapons were recovered and there was a 15-year-old teenage girl unrelated to anyone in the house at the time, police said.
Charges are pending.
