ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - Law enforcement raided a south St. Louis business Friday afternoon.

St. Louis police confirmed Dojo Pizza on Morganford is the subject of an investigation. A witness told FOX 2 she saw several agencies, including local police, FBI, Homeland Security, and St. Louis Animal Control, at the scene. Officials were seen carrying several items from the building.

"They technically just came in, took all the boards down, walked in, they had boxes of evidence. They walked out with really heavy boxes. "said  witness Courtney Fuller  "There was also animal control here. Apparently there was a cage involved."

The building has condemned property signs on it now.  Police have boarded the doors shut.  They say no charges have been filed at this time.

Earlier this month, St. Louis police responded to the same address in response to calls that a 46-year-old man was contributing to the delinquency of a minor and endangering the welfare of a child. That case was turned over to the St. Louis Circuit Attorney's Office.

Dojo Pizza is a non-profit organization that provides a safe place for kids to hang out, according to their Facebook page. Besides selling pizza,  adults take self defense classes, kids play basketball, and they offer karate classes.
