Police sweep turns up bad booze

Fuerza Púbica officers went on a hunt for untaxed alcohol, but they managed to turn up 325 bottles of what they called adulterated products. Basically these contain bootlegged alcohol.

Police said that officers from Coronado and San José participated in the sweep of 13 establishments that sell alcohol.

They found bottles that they believe to have been brought into the country without the appropriate tax being paid.

Officers were accompanied by representatives of the Fábrica Nacional de Licores. They said the adulterated alcohol was dangerous. The contents were mostly guaro, the sugar cane alcohol.

The investigators from the alcohol factory destroyed the adulterated alcohol, police said.

The bulk of these bottles are untaxed name brands.
