BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — A person who rented out a Bakersfield banquet hall for an event last month was cited for selling alcohol without a license, according to state officials.
Agents from the state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control and Kern deputies conducted an operation Nov. 15 at the banquet hall at 1430 Weedpatch Highway.
They seized more than 50 cases of beer and 50 bottles of liquor and issued citations to the operator of the event for selling alcohol without a license and failing to file a tax return, according to ABC.
Authorities say the operation stemmed from complaints that promoters and events that used that banquet hall sold alcohol to minors and without a license. The events have been advertised on social media.
