My Nook owner arrested over alcohol license



Both licenses must be posted inside the establishment in plain view, as stated on the license. 

However long the applicant chooses to wait between receipt of the local license and applying for the state permit is on the individual. There is no time limit.

The police chief said everything would have been OK if the My Nook owner completed his state licensing.

“You can take as long or as short of a time as you want, but in the meantime you can’t sell alcohol until you have both of them. That’s how you start getting alcohol,” Swicord said. “You can’t just go and buy beer and sell it.”

Swicord said Allbrook was “fully aware” and “had been told several times” that business must have both alcohol licenses.

“Everyone that goes through the process is aware of that,” the police chief said. “It’s there in black and white. 

My Nook recently threw a New Year’s party, which according to MPD led to Allbrook’s brush up last Thursday.

“So New Year’s Eve night, I sent an undercover person in there to purchase alcohol from him,” the police chief said. “The following week we made contact with him, inventoried and seized his alcohol out of his building and we brought him down to the police station where he posted $1,000 bond for selling alcohol without a license.”

The citation is considered a misdemeanor. 

MPD said the process has happened in the past, and “it’s nothing out of the ordinary.”

“Wherever alcohol is being sold, you have the ability to walk in and check inventory,” Swicord said.

Allbrook said in the midst of the alcohol license issue he’s filed two complaints with the police department about patrol cars parked in front of the establishment.

“According to the tenants before me, (MPD) had never done this before until I got there,” Allbrook said. “Twice they pulled over people leaving my store at night. Of course, I felt like that hindered business.”
