ABC Agents Suspend Liquor License at San Francisco Saloon

CABCASAN FRANCISCO- When California Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) agents received a complaint that the Brown Jug Saloon in San Francisco was receiving stolen property, they entered the business undercover to check it out.  On June 2, 2016, their three-month undercover investigation lead to the arrests of two people for the sale of cocaine and receiving purported stolen property.

During the investigation, an undercover agent sold purported stolen bottles of distilled spirits to the saloon's licensee and employees at the business.  The investigation later lead to a bartender facilitating the sale of cocaine on several dates to an undercover agent.

"The saloon is now closed due the Notice of Suspension posted by ABC agents," said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona. "ABC laws are in place for the safety and well being of businesses, employees, patrons and the community.  When ABC laws are broken, surrounding neighborhoods and businesses suffer."
