VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAV) - A Virginia Beach business will no longer see military personnel coming through its doors. The Joint Armed Forces Disciplinary Control Board (JAFDCB) for the region added Coast 2 Coast Auto Sales to its "off-limits" list Thursday.
JAFDCB attempts to work with businesses that are under "off-limits" consideration before taking this kind of action. The purpose is to ensure the safety and security of service members.
The JAFDCB did not give specific reasons why the business was added.
Coast 2 Coast Auto Sales, located on 1305 Oceana Boulevard, does have the opportunity to notify the JAFDCB in writing that it has made corrections. The business would have to go through a hearing process in order to be removed from the "off-limits" list.

-Hampton Pipe and Tobacco, 86 W. Mercury Blvd., Hampton, Virginia 23669
