ABC Agent Posts 45-Day Notice of Suspension in Parlier ABC and Parlier Police Found Illegal Activity at the Purple Plum Fruit Stand

PARLIER– On June 16, 2021, a California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) agent posted a 45-day suspension notice at Purple Plum Fruit Stand on South Academy Avenue in Parlier. Alcohol sales are prohibited during the term of the suspension.

The suspension is the result of an inspection by an ABC agent working with the Parlier Police Department.  During the inspection, the agent discovered more than a pound of cannabis, unlawful possession of certain alcoholic beverages, and a stolen firearm inside the store. The agent also determined that the person in control of the store was acting in the capacity of an owner of the business but had not been qualified by the department. Owners of an ABC licensed business are required to complete an application and background process to determine suitability to hold an ABC license.

“This is an example of why the State of California employs ABC agents and conducts routine inspections,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona.   “ABC agents are a vital part of our public safety.  They inspect, investigate, conduct undercover work, all to protect the communities in which we live and work in.”

This action was taken as a result of ABC’s partnership with the Parlier Police Department, an Alcohol Policing Partnership (APP) grant agency. APP’s mission is to work with law enforcement agencies to develop an effective, comprehensive and strategic approach to eliminating the crime and public nuisance problems associated with alcoholic beverage outlets that cause harm.
