From the Longview Police Department:

LONGVIEW, TX - On Thursday, the Longview Police Department, partnering with the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission 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.

Twenty different alcohol retailers were checked by the undercover team. Of those 20 retailers, one of them sold alcohol to the undercover minors. The location that sold to minors was 611 E. Marshall Ave, which is a CEFCO Convenience Store.

At this location the individual that sold alcohol to the undercover minor was listed in an offense report for "making alcohol available to a minor". This offense is a class "A" misdemeanor and the report will be filed with the Gregg County District Attorney's Office for prosecution. In addition, the TABC issued an administrative citation to this business.
