Auburn,CA. A Placer County man has been arrested after he broke into a shuttered bar, reopened the business and started selling drinks to unwitting customers, according to the Placer County Sheriff's department.
The Placer County Sheriff's department arrested 29-year-old Travis Kevie of Newcastle after his 4-day stint as the barkeep of the historic Valencia Club in Penryn which had been shutdown for more than a year.
Detective Jim Hudson became suspicious after reading about the Valencia Club's re-opening in an Auburn Journal newspaper article that featured a picture of Kevie and identified him as the club's new "owner/operator". Not only had Detective Hudson had previous run-ins with Kevie, he knew the Valencia Club's liquor license had been surrendered.
When Detective Hudson went to the bar to investigate, he found it open for business and customers at the bar. Kevie quickly went from behind the bar to behind bars.
Deputies describe Kevie as a transient. They say he broke into the Valencia Club and put an open sign in the window on July 16th. Kevie kicked off his business with a six-pack of beer he bought and resold at the club. He used his profits to buy more alcohol keeping the club open throughout the weekend serving about 30 customers a day, deputies say.

Now this is the kind of crook I can support. A hard working, happy guy. He takes lemons and makes lemonade. What’s not to like?
Should pin a medal on the guy. He starts with a 6 pack and a dream....
Well, I think liquor licenses are bogus shakedowns, anyway.
I hope he doesn’t serve much time.
He’s a real entrepreneur! A little unconventional, perhaps, but his financial principles are sound.
A Horatio Alger in the Obama Era story.
He’s in jail for offending the powers that be, not for ripping off anyone.
Nice work if you can find it!
He'll serve more time than Lohan.
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before....”A man walks into a bar....”
Hold muh beer!
So a trannsy was running an illegal bar operation. That's what the Stonewall riots were about and museums now celebrate that as "liberating".
The next thing he will be doing is selling bail bonds..
I understand the need to do things the right way, and the landlord needs his piece, but in this day and time, someone employing people needs to be permitted to do what he can do.
A man breaks into a bar with a chip on his shoulder.
There’s no bartender in the room so he says, “Hey, drinks are on the house” and climbs up on the roof.
Exactly what I was thinking. If it wasn't for the freaking government interfering with his entrepreneurship he would probably be able to buy the property in a year or so.
