BUFFALO, NY-The New York State Liquor Authority Friday ordered an emergency suspension of a Buffalo bar for charges of repeatedly serving alcohol to minors.
Effective immediately, liquor cannot be served at "Mojos" located at 3148 Main Street.
Back in April, the Authority, along with Buffalo and New York State Police departments, sent three undercover agents into the bar. Entering at three different times, each was asked for ID at the door and provided a New York State driver's license clearly marked "Under 21". All three were able to buy alcohol from the bartender, who did not request ID.
The bar already has two pending cases against them for six sales to minors, offering unlimited drinks and for inadequate supervision. A hearing on those charges is set for next month.
"Cracking down on underage sales is a priority and the SLA will not hesitate in taking emergency action against licensees that blatantly and repeatedly sell to minors," said SLA Chairman Dennis Rosen. "We will continue to work with our partners in law enforcement across the state to hold licensees accountable."
