5 Longview stores sold alcohol to minors, 28 did not

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -

Released by the Longview Police Department:

On July 24, 2010 the Longview Police Department, partnering with the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) and Longview Partners in Prevention, conducted off-premise minor stings at area retailers to validate compliance with Texas law prohibiting the sale of alcohol to minors.

33 different alcohol retailers were checked by the undercover team.  Of those 33 retailers, five of them sold alcohol to the undercover minors.  The locations that sold to minors were:

  1. 3607 S. Eastman Road – DC Shamrock
  2. 1929 Hwy 80 East – Tiger Mart of Longview
  3. 701 S. Eastman Road – Kwick Food Mart
  4. 1001 Young Street – Cowboy's # 13
  5. 701 W. Marshall Avenue – Kroger # 959

At these locations the individuals that sold alcohol to the undercover minor were listed in offense reports for "making alcohol available to a minor".  This offense is a class A misdemeanor and the reports will be filed with the Gregg County District Attorney's Office for prosecution.  In addition, the TABC issued administrative citations to each business.

The 28 locations that did not sell alcohol to the undercover minors are:
