State Police liquor control enforcement officers cited a Penn Hills pizza shop with nine violations this weekend, including operating without a health permit or license.

The Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement, a branch of the state police, cited the Fireside Pizza Pub in the 11600 block of Frankstown Road, according to a statement released Sunday.

Those included: failing to maintain cleaning records for their drink dispensing system; failing to clean the dispensing system at least once a week; allowing smoking in an establishment where it was supposed to be banned; operating without a valid health department permit; and possessing or operating gambling devices.

An administrative law judge could impose a penalty ranging from $50 to $5,000 for each violation upon conviction, police said. Shop representatives could not be reached for comment.
