Two Clayton Bar Employees Arrested for Alleged Drug Sales A California ABC and Clayton Police Department investigation

CLAYTON- On April 10, 2019, California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) agents and Clayton Police Department officers arrested two Clayton Club Saloon employees for alleged illegal drug sales.

ABC received an anonymous complaint alleging employees were involved in illegal narcotics activity at the licensed premises. ABC Agents worked undercover at the location for nearly three months and purchased suspected cocaine from a bouncer and bartender on multiple occasions.

Arrested were bar bouncer Kevin Garne, 31, of Clayton and bartender Zachary Bednarz, 31, of Concord.

“These types of investigations can be dangerous for agents and officers,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona.  “Selling illegal drugs inside a licensed ABC business where people are already consuming alcohol puts the public at risk.  ABC agents work to protect citizens by working undercover in and around stores, bars and restaurants that sell alcoholic beverages.”

ABC will be filing an administrative accusation against the licensed premises which could result in disciplinary action involving a fine, license suspension or possibly the revocation of the ABC license.
