ABC Agents Post Notice of Suspension at BevMo in Menlo Park

MENLO PARK — On September 7, 2023, California Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) agents posted a 65-day Notice of Suspension at BevMo in Menlo Park, according to a Menlo Park Police Department (MPPD) press release.   The suspension means alcohol sales are prohibited at this location until November 11, 2023.

According to MPPD, MPPD officers and ABC agents conducted minor decoy operations throughout the City of Menlo Park.  BevMo reportedly furnished alcohol to decoys who were under the age of 21 on three separate occasions during the course of these operations.

In addition to the 65-day suspension, the license also has a penalty of revocation stayed for the next three years, meaning the license is on probation, and if a similar violation were to occur within the next three years, then ABC has the authority to revoke the license.

“It is so important that these operations continue throughout the state so that ABC agents can identify businesses, servers and clerks who may not value the importance of checking identification.  Such an easy task that contributes to the prevention of underage drinking which can lead to the harm of others,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona.
