via The Austin American-Statesman:

Ten people linked to a company that operates several downtown Austin bars were arrested Thursday and charged with a variety of crimes, including distributing cocaine, transferring firearms used to commit drug trafficking and money laundering, according to newly unsealed federal indictments.

Yassine Enterprises owner and President Hussein Ali “Mike” Yassine, his brothers Hadi Ali Yassine and Mohammed Ali Yassine, their assistant Marisse Marthe Ruales and six others were taken into custody following an investigation that dates to 2007, records indicate.

Officers from the combined agencies swarmed the Yassine Enterprises offices on West Fourth Street and some of the company’s nine bars — Pure, Spill, Kiss & Fly, Stack Burger Bar, Treasure Island, Hyde, Fuel, Malaia and Roial — Thursday morning, and were spotted removing computers and boxes of documents. Bottles of alcohol were also being inventoried.

The clubs it operates – located on Colorado, Trinity, West Fourth, West Fifth and East and West Sixth streets — will remain closed for the foreseeable future, law enforcement officials told the American-Statesman.
