Roseville bar suspended for multiple charges

December 28, 2018 Roseville, Ca – after an investigation the Onyx Club Bar will face suspension, sales limitations, and security guard requirements.

Roseville Police Department received a tip that members of the Onyx Club bar staff were involved in sales of narcotics while working. In early November 2018 the Roseville Police Crime Suppression Unit (CSU) and State Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) completed an investigation that showed validity to the claim. Both CSU and ABC conducted undercover operations where detectives were able to purchase cocaine as well as document several violations.

Roseville Police has filed charges for the sales of narcotics with the Placer County District Attorney’s office. ABC moved forward with their administrative process and the ownership of the Onyx Club agreed to the following penalties and stipulations:
- 30 day suspension – beginning 1-3-19
- 3 year suspended revocation
- Limitation of alcoholic beverage sales on the patio after 10:00 p.m. Sunday-Wednesday and 1:00 a.m. Thursday-Saturday
- 1 licensed uniformed security guard on Friday and Saturday

The Roseville Police Department appreciates a strong working relationship with State Alcoholic Beverage Control. Together we strive to hold bars and night clubs accountable for their operations. "ABC appreciates the hard work that its Agents and Roseville Police Officers put into this investigation. This case is a good example of how strong partnerships between ABC and local law enforcement bolster safety in communities throughout the State," said ABC Supervising Agent in Charge Kathryn Sandberg.
