Police Raid Restaurant Owned By Del. Minnick

DUNDALK, Md. (AP) — Baltimore County police say they have seized five electronic gaming devices from a Dundalk restaurant owned by Del. Joseph J. “Sonny” Minnick.

According to The Baltimore Sun, police spokeswoman Detective Cathy Batton says police removed the machines last week from a bar on Sollers Point Road while acting on a complaint received by the Board of Liquor License Commissioners. Batton says no charges have been filed.

Michael Mohler, chief administrator for the liquor board, says the agency received an anonymous complaint in May that the bar “has been paying off on poker machines and has been for years.”

Mohler says the liquor license is in the name of Joseph J. Minnick and two others.

Calls to Minnick’s Restaurant and Minnick’s home were not immediately returned Friday.
