ABC Agents Post Notice of Suspension at Pine Street Saloon in Paso Robles Undercover agents purchased marijuana from employee

PASO ROBLES - On Thursday, April 27, 2017,  California Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) agents posted a Notice of Suspension at the Pine Street Saloon in Paso Robles. The license is suspended for 25 days and alcohol sales are prohibited during the suspension period. The license is suspended following a six-week undercover investigation in which an employee allegedly sold or furnished marijuana on three separate occasions to ABC agents.

The employee, Daniel French, has pled no contest to selling or furnishing marijuana and has been sentenced to 60 days in jail and three years’ formal probation.

“It is unfortunate that this type of illegal behavior takes place in licensed businesses,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona.  “This is an example of the need for ABC agents and their undercover work in bars, restaurants and stores that sell alcoholic beverages.  Their work helps to protect all of us out on the roads and in our communities.”
