Goatroper’s Bar Getting New Owner, New Name
ST. CLOUD -- A popular Stearns County bar will be getting a new owner and a new name next month.
The Stearns County Board of Commissioners has approved a full on/off sale liquor license for Stephanie Jacobs. Jacobs is poised to take over Goatropers Bar & Grill in Farming Township from Anthony Thelen after Thelen's guilty plea on tax crimes.
Jacobs is currently an employee at Goatroper's and plans to rename the bar Trappers Pub & Grub when she takes over April 1st.
Thelen's liquor license will be effectively rescinded at the time Jacob's license is issued.
Thelen has pleaded guilty to nine of the 24 felony counts involving filing fraudulent sales tax returns and failing to file personal income tax returns. He faces a possible sentence of just under two years in prison when he's sentenced April 18th.
