Bar owner calls drug raid ‘joke’

The manager of London Burgers and Beers has criticised ACT police in the Canberra Times today following the raid on his business last October.

The business was closed for a week while police, as well as health and work safety officers, searched the premises for drugs.

Minor health and work safety breaches were found, mostly relating to emergency exits.

”When you’ve got 20-odd police officers in suits, confining you to a booth, while they go through the place from head to toe for 6 hours and find absolutely nothing, it makes you wonder what they base their information on,” Mr Soprano said.

”We had to keep our staff on wages for over a week even though we weren’t open, because people have families to worry about. Effectively, it cost us a lot of money.”

ACT Police said the investigation was on-going.

Tony Soprano – FOTM?

IF this is the same guy featured in Tooks’ link..

IF you are a ‘Colourful Sydney (Dog) Racing Identity’ and the subject of much media innuendo, it makes sense to change your name – fresh start, new city and all that.

But could there be a worse choice than Tony Soprano? Why not go completely brain dead and go with Al Capone?

Dumb AND smartarsed is a bad combination. Well done Plod.

Like I was saying in a previous post – being served your meals by biker/felon looking waiters who look like they want to smack your head in did give the place a really suss feel! The burgers were so good though. I am going to miss a certain flirty Barmaid there too.

Not going there again knowing that Soprano is a known felon.

Good on the cops for pouncing so fast on the business. Even if they didn’t find anything – it’s the thought that counts!
