Nahar Food and Discount Liquor at 600 S. Virginia St. will have their packaged alcohol license suspended for one week. The suspension runs from Dec. 1 through 8. An additional three week suspension is held in abeyance for one year provided no other sales to minors occur. Previous offenses of selling to minors have occurred in 2008, 2004 and 2002.
Jackson’s Food Store #18 at 901 N. Virginia St., stipulated to a one week suspension, Nov. 29 through Dec. 6. Previous offenses of selling to minors have occurred prior to 2008.
Both suspensions come as a result of a sting conducted by the Reno Police Department’s Street Enforcement Team (SET) on July 12, according to Reno Police detectives.
When a privileged liquor license is suspended, sales of alcohol are suspended at a business, but the liquor license suspension does not impact other product sales. Citations are issued to store employees for sales or furnishing of alcohol to a minor resulting in review of the store’s privileged liquor license in an administrative hearing that involves the Reno City Attorney’s Office, the Reno Finance department and police.
Hearings can result in suspension of the license for a specific period of time, or revocation of the license.
