According to Sudbury Police Lt. Scott Nix, was recently issued a warning for violating regulations of the licensing authority.
On May 9, patrons in the restaurant were discovered in the establishment past the time allowed by the authority. Nix said patrons were still inside about 30 minutes past the allowed closing time, which was about 1:45 a.m.
"The matter was addressed with Lavender that morning and the situation was made aware to the chief of police (Richard Glavin)," Nix said. "There was no evidence of alcohol being served at that time, but patrons were present past the time allowed."
Nix said Glavin issued a warning to the management of Lavender. Language in the warning included if any further violations should occur, it will be noted and the licensing authority may take further action.
Nix also said this is the first warning Lavender has ever received.
"They've been pretty respectful with things," he said.
A person who answered the phone at Lavender said the manager was not available for comment.
