A 7-Eleven market in Van Nuys is a public nuisance that fosters prostitution, drug sales, drunken-ness and lewd conduct, and the store must hire a security guard and close late at night, a Los Angeles city zoning panel ruled Tuesday.

A 7-Eleven market in Van Nuys, cited four times for selling alcohol to minors and intoxicated customers, must curtail its hours of operation, stop selling single cans of beer and abide by 19 other conditions, Los Angeles zoning officials ruled Friday.

A Los Angeles City Council panel on Tuesday agreed that a 7-Eleven market in Lake View Terrace is a nuisance and must, among other conditions, hire a 24-hour security guard to keep its city liquor sales permit. On a 2-0 vote, the council's Planning and Land-Use Management Committee endorsed tough restrictions on the market at 11348 Sunburst St., and rejected an appeal for leniency by Southland Corp., which owns 7-Eleven Food Stores.

The obviously drunk woman staggered into the 7-Eleven store on Sunburst Street in Lake View Terrace, pulled a $5 bill from her coat and wordlessly placed it on the counter. Recognizing a regular customer, the clerk pulled a pint of liquor from below and handed over her change, even though selling alcohol to an intoxicated person is illegal. The incident, observed by police vice officers, was typical of the store's indifferent sales practices, according to residents and customers.

They tried police patrols, curfews on arcade games and bright lights. Now officials at Southland Corp. are hoping that Thousand Oaks youths who hear the violin strains of a Brandenburg concerto at their local 7-Eleven store will take their Slurpees and run.
