Two bars under close watch after violating the liquor ban

STA. ANA Police personnel continue to monitor the two erring bars for serving alcohol to customers past the 1 a.m. ban on April 14-15.

Wala ko kabalo unsa ingon sa Business Bureau pero gina monitor man namo ug ma caught in the act nga painom lampas na sa liquor ban ipa close na diretso,” Captain Rizalito Clapiz III of the Sta. Ana Police Station said on Sunday interview.

He said the bar owners paid the P3,000 fine for the first offense.

Under the city ordinance, violators will be penalized P3,000 for the first offense; the second offense is P5,000 or imprisonment, or both; and the third and subsequent offenses will be P5,000 and one-year imprisonment, along with business permit revocation for the establishment.

The police arrested and issued citation tickets to 273 individuals who violated the city’s alcohol ordinance. They will pay P3,000 each. 

“A case will be filed against them if they will not pay the penalty,” he added.

According to the report, police received information that the bars served alcohol even through the morning. 

At around 3 a.m., Clapiz and PCapt. Vianney Pomperado, deputy station commander, led the raid on the two bars located at Jacinto Street corner Padre Faura Street, and Narra Street corner Fatima Street, to enforce City Ordinance 004-13 series of 2013.

He added that Mayor Sebastian Duterte had already asked for the names of the erring bar owners. 

“It was (bars) also raided before the pandemic,” he further said.
