A Milton business owner was arrested by the Louisiana ATC and the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office for selling alcohol without having a state permit.

Louisiana Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control Commissioner Troy Hebert had this to say,


“Not only was this business operating illegally, they sold alcohol to an operative who was only 16 years old. This sort of disregard for the law will not be tolerated.”


The owner of SM Mamani LLC, Muhammad Amersi, does business at that location as Tiger Stop #3 on West Milton Avenue.

This store was recently denied a state alcohol permit, but the underage, undercover agent was able to by a beer from a store worker.

The 35-year-old Amersi was called to the store, and he was arrested when he arrived.
