Baton Rouge, La. – Louisiana Alcohol and Tobacco Control (ATC) Commissioner Troy Hebert issued emergency suspensions to four more French Quarter bars found in violation during the Agency’s “Operation Trick or Treat” investigation. Commissioner Hebert ordered the businesses to immediately stop selling alcohol and tobacco products after the agency’s investigation uncovered illegal drug sales at two bars and illegal prostitution and drug activity at two strip clubs.

“We are in the second month of this operation and it will continue to run through the holidays. ATC will continue to do its part to weed out criminal activity at locations that are given the privilege to sell alcohol and tobacco,” stated Commissioner Hebert.
