[Updated] Cops close Anwar Grocery on Avenue B

Happened last night here near the corner of Seventh Street...

As you can see, cops cited them for "illegal sale of alcoholic beverages."

East Village Eats noted that the NYPD busted the grocery on New Year's Eve as well.

Also. During a three-day sweep last November, the State Liquor Authority charged 118 licensed groceries and liquor stores throughout New York City with underage alcohol sales ... including these five in the East Village:

• St. Marks Convenience Inc., 31 St. Marks Place
• Ave A Deli & Grocery, 123 Avenue A
• Anwar Grocery (Pending license), 106 Avenue B
• Yoo's Convenience, 50 2nd Avenue
• C & B Grocery, 248 E 14th Street

The white papers are a Summons and Verified Complaint that was I assume "nailed and mailed" to their gate. As I walked by a summons was being written for the paper garbage on the street in front of this establishment...paper garbage but really something else.
