A Palatine restaurant where authorities say illegal drug sales have taken place has agreed to sanctions and its business license being suspended for two weeks.

Attorneys for Palatine and Tacos Y Mariscos La Presa Inc. reached the agreement Wednesday under which the business was found guilty of violating village ordinances.

La Presa, 319 S. Rohlwing Road, was shut down Thursday and will remain closed until 9 a.m. March 7. The business also was fined $1,000, and has agreed to pay the village an additional $1,452.60 to cover court costs before March 7.

Per the order, an employee who served liquor at the restaurant without proper certification will no longer be allowed to work there, and the restaurant's two managers, Martin Machado and Nicholas Vasquez, are required to be present during operating hours.
