California ABC Agents Post Suspension Notice at Oxnard Bar

OXNARD- On August 8, 2019, California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) agents posted a 45-day Notice of Suspension at of El Tenampa Cantina in Oxnard.  The business is prohibited from selling, serving and allowing consumption of alcoholic beverages during the suspension period. Additionally, the license is placed on probation for the next three years and if any similar violations occur, then ABC has the authority to revoke the license.

Undercover agents visited the location numerous times during an investigation and discovered violations that involved illegal drink solicitations. Such practices can contribute to the over-service of alcohol and possibly other violations of law. As a result, ABC filed an accusation against the licensee.

Additionally, undercover agents observed several other criminal and administrative violations, including possession of distilled spirits without the proper license, possession of a slot machine, and violations of operating conditions which were imposed on the license at the time of issuance.

“ABC licensees have a responsibility to operate their businesses in a lawful manner,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona.  “It’s the job of ABC agents to visit and if necessary, investigate ABC licensed businesses for possible violations.   Violations, such as drink solicitations and gambling typically lead to the type of cliental that ends up causing problems for neighboring businesses and residents.”
