He and dozens of other officers found nothing untoward at the area’s bars.
They has been looking for evidence of underage staff, drugs, and weapons and were also checking up on the histories of staff working in the area. They also checked licenses at many of the bars.
Officials reported that no issues were discovered and that Col. Chorseng was pleased to discover that there were no problems.

No problems were found elsewhere either according to the report.
