The police have confirmed that the raid on Wakey Wines was not related to drugs.
Over the past few months, the infamous off-licence has found itself, by its own design, of course, at the centre of a social media storm. And was recently 'raided' by police:
With the whole country seemingly in a panic to get their hands on KSI and Logan Paul's Prime drink, countless people raced to the shop in Wakefield, where it was being flogged for hundreds of pounds.
If you don't know what I'm talking about, I don't know where you've been.
If you do, however, you'll no doubt have seen the videos of men, women and children standing beside the shop's owner, Mohammad Azir Nazir, holding their very expensive bottles and cans.
Well, last week, Nazir took to social media after police 'raided' his premises, claiming that cops were looking for 'class A drugs' during the visit.
He began by greeting fans of the shop, before explaining: "Quarter past three today, we got raided by West Yorkshire Police. Guess what for? Class A drugs.
"But I'm a changed man. Only thing I sell now is Prime and WFD sweets and that's about it."
He then thanked his haters before asking the person filming to 'come closer' to the document, which appeared to confirm his claim that no illegal substances were found in the shop.
"Carry on hating me," Nazir said. "You do what you gotta do. I will do what I gotta do, me and my team. I've left that lifestyle."
The shopkeeper then revealed that while the shop was closed for an hour-and-a-half and 'you got the dogs in', the haters, who he assumed were behind the raid, were ultimately unsuccessful in taking down the shop.
"Police are only doing their job, aren't they?" Nazir asserted. "You've done a job."
Referring to the document he was holding, he said: "That proves it. Boss man at Wakey Wines is a legit guy."
As you can imagine, it didn't take long for the vid to go viral, with people quick to offer their 10 pence on the situation.
Pointing to the shop's reputation for selling overpriced bottles of Prime, one person quipped: "2 crates of prime seized with an estimated street value of £2.6 million."
But all joking aside, West Yorkshire Police has since come out and claimed that the raid had nothing to do with drugs.
A spokesman for the force said: "Wakefield Police and West Yorkshire Trading Standards attended at a premises on Marygate, Wakefield, on Friday, March 3 to execute a warrant.
"Enquiries remain ongoing by West Yorkshire Trading Standards."
