One person has been arrested after the Washington County Narcotics Task Force executed a search warrant Monday at a Mexican restaurant in downtown Hagerstown.
Sgt. Stewart Heckman, director of the task force, confirmed that agents served a warrant at El Paso Cantina and Grill, but he declined further comment because charges had yet to be filed.
“It’s ongoing and I can’t give out further information at this time,” Heckman said in a phone interview.
Authorities did not immediately have more details.
The business, at 10-12 E. Washington St., was closed Monday afternoon.
A sign affixed by duct tape to the front door stated that the building had been condemned, citing the city’s property maintenance code for an unlawful structure.
An unlawful structure “is one found in whole or in part to be occupied by more persons than permitted under this code, or was erected, altered or occupied contrary to law,” according to city code documents online.
Maryland property records list Jose Resino Gomez as the owner of the mixed-use building.
El Paso, a longtime Hagerstown eatery, moved downtown in 2013. Before that, the family-owned restaurant operated for about two decades at 700 Dual Highway.
