El Troquero Bar: Molestia Pública y Supuesto Centro Ilegal

July 28, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

El Troquero Bar, localizado en el Este de Los Ángeles, está bajo la mira del fiscal municipal de la ciudad gracias a las alegaciones que vinculan al negocio con actividades ilícitas.

De acuerdo a los abogados fiscales, el bar localizado en el 2119 E. Cesar Chavez Ave., es un lugar frecuentado por pandillas y es usado como centro de ventas de cocaína y metanfetamina.

El fiscal, Mike Feur, está generando requerimientos judiciales para el establecimiento tal como la asignación de una persona, elegida por la corte, quien tomará control de la administración del negocio.

“Cada negocio y sus respectivos dueños tienen una responsabilidad moral con su comunidad”, dijo Feur. “Mi oficina continuará exigiéndoles cuentas a todos aquellos quienes violen la ley o faciliten actividades ilegales”.

Al menos dos tiroteos han sucedido en el bar, como uno que ocurrió afuera en el 2014, causando la muerte de una persona.

Una sola propiedad puede corromper la calidad de vida del vecindario, dijo Feur, y por eso está determinado a ponerle un alto a la actividad criminal surgiendo en El Troquero.

La demanda es en contra del dueño del negocio, el dueño de la propiedad al igual que varios de los empleados. También ha colocado al bar bajo administración judicial.

Medidas adicionales de seguridad han sido pedidas por Feur para asegurar que los empleados nombrados en la demanda no se acerquen a más de 1,000 pies del lugar.

City Atty. Targets East L.A. Bar for Shut Down

Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer is taking legal steps to halt alleged criminal activity centered around a bar in East Los Angeles.

Feuer announced July 21 that his office is requesting legal injunctions that include having a court-appointed receiver take over management of the El Troquero Bar at 2119 E. Cesar Chavez Ave.

City attorneys allege the bar is frequented by gang members, and employees use the bar as a base for selling cocaine and methamphetamine. They claim the activity has been going on for years.

The bar has been the site of at least two shootings, including 2014 gunfire that took place outside and resulted in the death of one person. The illegal and nuisance activity has been going on for several years, according to Feuer’s office.

City attorneys also allege employees get a commission for selling alcohol to patrons, and that alcohol is being sold to customers who are clearly intoxicated

Feuer said he is going after the bar because one property can often “erode public safety and the quality of life for an entire neighborhood.”

“Every business and property owner has a responsibility to the community,” he said. “My office will continue to hold accountable those whom we allege flout the law or facilitate illicit illegal activity.”

Other nuisance activity allegedly regularly spills out of the bar into the surrounding community, including a myriad of violent crimes such as assaults, robberies at gunpoint and shootings.

The lawsuit was filed against the bar’s owner, the property owner, as well as several employees. In addition to the receivership, Feuer also is requesting extra security features at the property, and for orders preventing the employees named in the lawsuit from getting within 1,000 feet of the bar.
