OAKLAND PARK, FL – According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office’s Strategic Investigations Division and the Pompano Beach Crime Suppression Team, restaurateur Louis Younglove Sr., 57, of Oakland Park, not only served up hot dogs with fixings. He helped some people get their fix by peddling drugs.
Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives culminated a months long investigation on Thursday, February 4 when they conducted a traffic stop on Younglove at 334 S.E. 15th Street in the parking lot of his restaurant, Chi-Town Chicago Italian Beef & Hot Dogs.
Inside a duffle bag in Younglove’s car, detectives found a smorgasbord of illegal drugs; cocaine, fentanyl, ecstasy, marijuana and various prescription drugs. Detectives also found more than $18,000 in cash. Younglove’s son, Adam Younglove, 24, also of Oakland Park, was a passenger in the car. He was found in possession of fentanyl and marijuana and was arrested.
