HAMMOND — Officers from the Hammond Police Department and Indiana Excise Police raided Do Do’s Firehouse Tap, 521 Conkey St., early Saturday morning after previously making controlled narcotics buys from two bartenders there, Hammond Police Chief Brian Miller said.
In an email report, Miller said four people were arrested — two for arrest warrants, one for marijuana possession and one who refused to provide his identity to police officers — when police arrived at 12:20 a.m. Saturday to serve a search warrant.
Miller said this is the second time the Hammond Police have made arrests for narcotics in the bar. He said the bar’s license was suspended in 2009 under similar circumstances. “I do not know why the alcohol permit was reissued,” he wrote.
Miller said the business was closed for electrical code violations Saturday morning.
His department will forward the case to the Lake County Prosecutor’s Office for possible charges against the bartenders. And, the bar’s alcohol permit will be reviewed by the excise police.
