More Than Just Drinks - ABC Agents Find Drugs For Sale At Merced Bar

Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) agents spent several months investigating suspected drug activity inside Carolyn's bar in Merced and on Thursday, shut it down.

According to an ABC press release, the license of  Carolyn's will be indefinitely suspended because the bar allowed a bartender and patrons to sell and use illegal drugs on the premises.

The illegal drugs reportedly included marijuana and methamphetamine.  The investigation involving the bartender and two patrons continues.

"Our California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) members who are agents with ABC work closely with local law enforcement agencies to enforce drug and alcohol laws," said CSLEA President Alan Barcelona.  "By cleaning up what goes on inside these establishments, agents are helping to keep neighborhoods and communities safe."

The owners of Carolyn's agreed to an indefinite suspension of their license to sell and serve alcoholic beverages.  They have one year to sell the license and if the license is sold, any new owners will have to operate at a different location and that location would have to be approved by local government.
