2 Longview retailers sell alcohol to minors during sting

Released by The Longview Police Department:

LONGVIEW, TX - On Thursday, April 21, 2011 the Longview Police Department, partnering with the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) and Longview Partners in Prevention, conducted off-premise and on-premise minor stings at area retailers to validate compliance with Texas law prohibiting the sale of alcohol to minors.

41 different alcohol retailers were checked by the undercover teams.  Of those 41 retailers, two of them sold alcohol to the undercover minors.  The locations that sold to minors were: Food Fast # 18 at 1316 Alpine Road and Cheddars Casual Cafe at 3074 N Eastman Rd. 

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