ABC Agents Put A Stop to the Sale of Alcohol at Inglewood Liquor Store

CABCAOn June 25, 2014, agents from the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) posted a Notice of Revocation at Gin’s Liquor in Inglewood.  The store can no longer sell alcoholic beverages following an investigation that revealed neighborhood crime associated with the business.

"ABC agents routinely work with local law enforcement departments to combat neighborhood trouble spots," said Alan Barcelona, president of the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA).  CSLEA represents ABC agents along with  nearly 7,000 other law enforcement, public safety and consumer protection professionals who work for the State of California.  "No one wants a business in their neighborhood that contributes to crime, noise, blight  and worrisome activity."

ABC initiated an investigation after numerous alcohol-related crimes at or near Gin's.  Those crimes involved shootings, public drunkenness, loitering and alcohol sold to minors.   ABC reviewed numerous calls for service and police reports recorded  between January 2009 and March 2011. Those reports substantiated claims that the operation of the business, and crime surrounding it, had become a drain on police resources.

In addition, Gin’s Liquor was caught selling alcohol to minors three separate times in recent years in various undercover minor decoy operations .  Ultimately, the ABC  revoked the license based on a third sale to a minor. All appeals on this revocation have been exhausted.
