Alcohol permit stripped from Coliseum Boulevard gas station

Thursday, August 22, 2013 - 1:26 pm

A gas station on East Coliseum Boulevard on Wednesday had its alcohol permit revoked by the Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission.

The station, Coliseum Petroleum, at 909 E. Coliseum Blvd., carries the BP brand on its signs. A news release from the Indiana State Excise Police said the revocation followed the May 24 citation of Coliseum Petroleum for two violations of the Alcohol Beverage Code: public nuisance (drugs) and failure to maintain a high and fine reputation.

The manager of the store, 28-year-old Aman Dasson, pleaded guilty to dealing in a synthetic marijuana lookalike substance and paid a fine Aug. 19, the release said. The substance was hidden in plastic eggs that were sold for $5 each and labeled as a car freshener.
