A 3rd District judge has ruled prosecutors may not use 177 grams of cocaine as evidence against a prominent businessman.

The cocaine was seized during a May 1989 raid on the home of Wesley Anderson, former president of Dee's Family Restaurants and the son of Dee Anderson, the founder of the restaurant chain.The cocaine was suppressed as evidence by Judge Frank Noel, who said narcotics investigators did not have enough solid evidence before raiding Anderson's Draper home.
