DA wants to shut pizza shop near Pitt due to drugs

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The district attorney wants to shut down a pizza parlor near the University of Pittsburgh campus as a “nuisance” establishment after its owner was jailed on dozens of drug-related charges.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for 35-year-old Fadi Aboud (FAH’-dee ah-BOOD’), who was in the Allegheny County Jail unable to post $200,000 bond Wednesday.

Aboud was arrested Tuesday and charged after investigators say they found more than a pound of cocaine, two pounds of marijuana, and several dozen painkiller pills at Aboud’s home and his Larry & Carol’s Pizza Shop.

A spokesman for Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala Jr. says the arrest stemmed from a six-month investigation by the office’s Narcotics Enforcement Team, state police, and police in several suburbs east of the city.
