A 10th Avenue liquor store received a two-day suspension for selling alcohol to a police officer who was under 21 years of age.
10th Ave. Liquors and Food Mart, located at 350 10th Avenue, pleaded non-vult to a January 10th, 2015 violation on Wednesday evening.
The establishment was cited for selling alcohol to an underage undercover police officer, according to Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) Board records.
Luis Marquez, owner of the establishment, and his Park Avenue attorney, Neil Chessin appeared before the board.
Chessin said Marquez runs a “relatively tight establishment.” The attorney further added that the employee made the sale has been fired.

The two-day suspension begins on Monday, November 2nd, 2015.
