A local business is forced to temporarily close after the discovery that it was operating without a valid Fredericksburg business license. Fredericksburg Police Spokeswoman Natatia Bledsoe says James Nikitakis was arrested Friday, but released on a personal recognizance bond the same day.
Records show that business license taxes were not paid at Central Station on Princess Anne Street for more than a year. Police came across the information as their investigation into a double shooting at the establishment last month progressed.
Central Station will likely reopen soon though. The Fredericksburg City Teasurer tells WFLS that Nikitakis paid the business taxes for 2012 and 2013, in full, early Monday morning.
