The City Sheriff teamed up with the 104th Precinct early Sunday to raid an illegal club in a warehouse on the border of Maspeth and Ridgewood.

More than 150 partiers were discovered just after midnight at 50-00 Grand Ave. during the bust, in violation of state orders against gatherings during the pandemic, the Sheriff tweeted.

Photos released by authorities show dozens of people lined up against a wall in a space outfitted with blue overhead lights.

Law enforcement said the club had no liquor license, and they found health code violations. One promoter was arrested, according to the Sheriff. There was no information immediately available about the arrest.

The raid is the third in Queens over the past three weekends. Previously, two clubs on Roosevelt Avenue were busted by authorities.

These are the kind of lawbreaking places that are making it hard for law abiding dining places to allow people inside! These clubs should be closed, not the other places.
