Papa John's Reopens Following Roach Problem

A popular Northgate pizza chain was reopened Wednesday afternoon after roaches forced its closure.

Papa John's Pizza in the 600 block of University Drive was shut down Tuesday after health inspectors said they found several roaches on the counter and floor.

Officials were following up on last week's inspection that turned up a third violation involving insects, according to inspectors.

According to the Brazos County Health Department, the roach problem has been remedied by pest control.

Papa John's was charged a $500 fine.
