Police seek to withhold licence

The police have applied for the cancellation or suspension of an on-licence involving the Captain Cook Tavern, Dunedin, and the Liquor Licensing Authority will hear the matter later this month.

A notice issued by the authority says the application will be considered in a Dunedin District Court hearing room on March 29.

The on-licence was issued to Stab in the Dark Enterprises, and the application was made by police Sergeant Wayne Pitcaithly, under the Sale of Liquor Act.

An application has also been made under the Act for the suspension or cancellation of a manager's licence at the tavern.

It is understood the applications arise from matters in May last year.

No information was available from police yesterday.
