TABC agents say they seized several pounds of marijuana, an AR-15-style rifle, handguns and about $6,000 in cash from D&K Spring Liquor in Spring.

SPRING, Texas — A liquor store in Spring was selling a lot more than booze, according to investigators with the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission.  

TABC agents say they found several pounds of marijuana, an AR-15-style rifle, handguns and about $6,000 in cash at D&K Spring Liquor

Damian Shimfarr, 37, was arrested and charged with unlawful possession of a firearm and possession of marijuana. 

“Drugs, guns and cash fuel organized crime, and TABC will not tolerate crime at businesses we regulate,” TABC Executive Director Bentley Nettles said. “We will follow this arrest with a full investigation to hold accountable anyone who’s using a licensed business as a hub for illegal activity.”

TABC said their investigation into the liquor store at 23311 Aldine Westfield will continue and further action is possible. 

Shimfarr was taken to the Harris County Jail and later released after posting bond.

Anyone with information about illegal activity within a TABC-licensed business can file a report on the TABC website, by emailing complaints@tabc.texas.gov or by calling 888-THE-TABC.
