25 businesses pass alcohol compliance check

Staff Reports

Only two of the 27 businesses subject to a compliance check sold to alcohol to minors, according to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.

On Feb. 1, the sheriff’s office sent minors to a variety of stores and restaurants across the Valley to purchase alcohol.

Only two, Carson Valley Market and the Tillman 7-Eleven, did not pass the alcohol check, and the clerks were cited, according to Sheriff’s spokeswoman Sgt. Bernadette Smith.

“Underage drinking is a serious public health problem,” Smith said. “Alcohol is the most widely used substance of abuse among youth and drinking by young people poses enormous health and safety risks. The consequences of underage drinking affect everyone in the community, by way of property damage, vandalism, violence, injuries and death.”

Individual clerks face a misdemeanor, but the business’ liquor license can also be affected.
