MARYSVILLE– On June 24, 2021, the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) announced it revoked the liquor license of the Super Star Market located at 103 East 12th Street in Marysville. Alcohol sales are immediately prohibited and will not be allowed until the license is transferred.
ABC agents posted a notice of indefinite suspension at the store after finding numerous violations including sales of illegal drug paraphernalia, multiple sales of alcohol to minors, and receiving purportedly stolen property. The penalty is revocation with the revocation stayed for a period of 180 days to allow for the current owner to transfer the license to a new owner who is acceptable to ABC.
ABC also initiated a Target Responsibility for Alcohol Connected Emergencies (TRACE) investigation after receiving a California Highway Patrol (CHP) report of a DUI vehicle crash involving several minors who allegedly purchased alcohol at the store.
The September 19, 2020 single vehicle crash involved minors ranging from16-19 years old. The driver and one passenger sustained minor injuries. A third passenger sustained major injuries. The ABC TRACE investigation determined the minors purchased alcohol at Super Star Market prior to the crash.
“ABC licensees have a responsibility to adhere to rules and regulations that keep our youth and the public safe,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona. “Clearly ABC agents uncovered a number of suspected violations and took action in order to protect the public.”
