A line outside El Pecos on Friday.

Police officers have visited El Pecos on Ariapita Avenue.

The officers said they went to speak to the owner to get more information.

This follows long lines outside of El Pecos earlier today.

Just after 4 pm, a large contingent of police officers were seen El Pecos. The gates, however, were closed.

El Pecos had announced that it had turned its food retail business into a grocery and presented a certificate showing the change in business when the media visited the outlet on Thursday.

“A loophole is not always a loophole,” police told the media.
