Former Grass Valley Eatery Draws Complaints

A former Grass Valley eatery in the Pine Creek shopping center needs to be cleaned up. Grass Valley Police are receiving calls of live turtles and thousands of flies living in what was the Lin Q Buffet. Sgt Steve Johnson says the restaurant closed recently and apparently had not been cleaned.

The previous owner has a deadline to relocate the turtles to a more appropriate location and the owner says he will comply as well as clean and prepare the unit for a future business.

Discusting that they would leave the restaurant in that condition to begin with. If people hadn't complained they prob never would have gone back to clean it up!
