COMPTON- On October 3, 2019, California Alcoholic Beverage Control agents posted notices of enforcement action against a restaurant in Compton and a market in East Rancho Dominguez, both in south Los Angeles County.
Agents posted a Notice of Revocation at Los Dos Amigos in Compton, prohibiting the business from selling, serving and/or allowing the consumption of alcoholic beverages. Undercover agents visited the business numerous times during an investigation and found illegal drink solicitations being made, illegal gambling taking place, the sale of alcohol after hours among other offenses. The license is now revoked.
Also, on October 3rd, ABC agents posted a 25-day Notice of Suspension at the Carniceria Guadalajara market in East Rancho Dominguez. The business is not allowed to sell alcohol, as a result, for 25 days. The suspension follows an investigation conducted by ABC agents and California Department of Justice Bureau of Gambling Control special agents. During the investigation, six illegal gambling machines were found inside the business and seized.
“Businesses that sell and or serve alcohol must abide by California Alcoholic Beverage Control laws,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona. “Creating environments where illegal activity takes place puts a strain on neighborhoods and communities. ABC agents work undercover, many of the hours during the late night and early morning, and on weekends as well, to investigate illegal activity in bars, restaurants and markets.”
