A Danbury bar has been cited for a third time for violating public health emergency orders.  35-year old Erika Fajardo-Sumba, owner of La Costeñita Bar & Restaurant on Ives Street, was arrested on Friday on a warrant from a June 30 licensed business inspection.  Danbury Police say officers went to inspect the Ives Street establishment but were denied access.  Police say the doors were locked and the employees turned the lights off, but they could see people drinking inside the bar.  That's a violation of Governor Lamont’s coronavirus pandemic restrictions.  Police also referred the matter to state liquor control.  Fajardo-Sumba was also charged twice over Fourth of July weekend for “multiple violations” including employees not wearing masks, tables too close together, lack of partitions at the bar, and people drinking without food being ordered at the bar.
