A Spalding kebab shop owner has been prosecuted after selling vodka containing paint stripper chemicals.

Salaman Pelit, 41, licencee of Zorba 3 takeaway on Winsover Road in Spalding, was found guilty of selling non duty paid and fake vodka at Spalding Magistrates Court on January 30.

Lincolnshire Trading Standards prosecuted on the grounds that both Mr Pelit and Zorba 3 had been gaining financially from crime, after a raid in 2012 when 29 bottles of illegal alcohol were seized.

Tests on the seized alcohol proved that it was not vodka or any type of drinking alcohol and no details of the supplier or evidence that duty had been paid were present.
