LONGVIEW, TX - On May 7, 2010 the Longview Police Department, partnering with the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) and Longview Partners in Prevention, conducted on-premise minor stings at area retailers to validate compliance with Texas law prohibiting the sale of alcohol to minors.

Fifteen different alcohol retailers were checked by the undercover team. Of those fifteen retailers, three of them sold alcohol to the undercover minors. The locations that sold to minors were:

At all three of these locations, the individuals that sold alcohol to the undercover minor were listed in offense reports for "making alcohol available to a minor".
