FBI raids Remerton bars

| March 1, 2017

REMERTON — The Federal Bureau of Investigation and Internal Revenue Service raided three Remerton bars Tuesday morning in conjunction with searches in several cities across the state, according to a report by the Valdosta Daily Times.

BlueWater Saloon, Milltown Groove and Sand Bar (which used to be Flip Flops) were searched as part of an ongoing investigation. Details of the investigation have not been released by the FBI.

The three Valdosta bars are owned by Heath Cox, who reportedly told The Times he didn’t know if the bars would stay open and added he wanted to refer everything regarding the case to his lawyer.

    It’s about time! It’s out of control over there!

    This is ridiculous. Heath Cox is an amazing business owner. Trying to point blame on a bar for trouble is like trying to blame a gun for killing. I hope all three of his bars stay open and maybe one more one open too.

    I’m glad found out my teenage daughter was allowed in with fake id (still under 21) and was allowed to drink! I called once I was aware of where she was and called never got to talk to anyone to report the incident so either they could be more thorough or find out who’s allowing these underage kids in! It was said if there was a live band that was the loop hole! There’s time for young people to have fun grow up and enjoy college years, I was a bartender and I had no problem turning away the underage knowing I may keep them alive by not making it easy to drink and drive! All for people making a living but not at the expense of our youth they are going to screw up let’s not make it so easy!
