Nine Local Stores Cited In Alcohol Compliance Check

Posted: Updated:
Reno Police say the regional Street Enforcement Team conducted an undercover alcohol compliance check on Friday.
 
The focus of this check was to target stores that sell alcohol and to make sure that it's not being sold to minors .
 
Detectives used underaged volunteers to enter businesses to try to buy alcoholic beverages.
 
Police say if the volunteers were asked for identification, they gave clerks their true identification revealing that they are under the age of 21.
 
Of the 34 stores that were checked, nine were cited for selling alcohol to minors:
 
1. Jackson's - 10585 Stead Boulevard, Reno
2. 7-11 - 4997 South McCarran Boulevard, Reno
3. Fireside Inn - 205 East 4th Street, Reno
4. Shell - 700 North Sierra Street, Reno
5. Ace Liquor - 142 West 2nd Street, Reno
6. Wright Way Liquor - 330 Evans Street, Reno
7. 7-11 - 690 Booth Street, Reno
8. Jashan Market - 436 North Virginia Street, Reno
9. AM/PM - 600 Kietzke Lane, Reno
 
Detectives also checked employees to see if they had valid Alcohol Awareness Training cards. Of the 34 stores, three clerks did not have their card. They were issued a fine.
 
If you know a business that is selling alcohol to minors, you're being asked to call the Street Enforcement Team at (775) 334-3065.
