Since the beginning of 2009, there have been more than 380 police calls to the marketplace address, St. Paul Police Department records show. Most were for routine complaints, and there were only two minor reports involving drugs — one for marijuana possession and another related to narcotics.

“The safety of the public will be improved by stopping the illegal distribution of these unknown drug products by nonpharmaceutical sellers,” Ramsey County sheriff’s chief deputy John Kirkwood said in a news release. “These vendors have been knowingly placing the community at risk by engaging in these illegal sales and distribution.”
