1858

The Bossier Sheriff-Police Narcotics Task Force checked nine stores in the parish on Jan. 17 for underage alcohol sales; clerks at eight stores were in compliance, while one clerk from a Bossier City store was cited for selling alcohol to persons under the age of 21.

A clerk at this store was found not in compliance with the law and did sell alcohol to underage buyers:

  • Raceway, 8048 Highway 80, Bossier City (Sold to an underage person)

These eight stores were in compliance with the law that did not sell alcohol to underage buyers:

  • CVS, 998 Highway 80, Bossier City (No Sale)
  • Circle K, 5020 Highway 80, Haughton (No Sale)
  • Dixie Mart, 5315 Highway 80, Haughton (No Sale) 
  • Rogers Corner Store, 6511 Highway 80, Haughton (No Sale)
  • Haughton General Store, 9011 Highway 157, Haughton (No Sale)

  • Buc Stop, 201 N. Elm St. Haughton, LA. 71037 (No Sale) 
  • Dollar General, 120 S. Elm St., Haughton (No Sale)

“We point out those stores and clerks who commit a crime by selling alcohol to underage buyers,” said Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington, “and we want to do the same in a positive way for those stores that do the right thing.  Compliance with the law and safety of our young people is our goal.”
