Stores cited for underage alcohol sales

1707

Two stores were cited for underage alcohol sells by the Bossier Sheriff-Police Narcotics Task Force on Oct. 25.

The following stores were not in compliance with the law and did sell alcohol to underage buyers; charged with unlawful sales to persons under 21:

  • Reynolds #2, 1115 Highway 162, Benton
  • The Cellar, 4326 Benton Road, Bossier City

These 2 stores were in compliance with the law and did not sell alcohol to underage buyers:

  • Kangaroo Express, 2651 Benton Road, Bossier City
  • Raceway, 3645 Benton Road, Bossier City

“Ensuring businesses that sell alcohol are in compliance with the law is key,” said Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington.  “We want stores and clerks to ask for proper identification, and when the buyers are under the age of 21, clerks should refuse service.  Otherwise, if they sell alcohol to underage persons, the clerks will be cited.”

The Bossier Sheriff-Police Narcotics Task Force comprises deputies with the Bossier Sheriff’s Office and officers with the Bossier City Police Department and was formed in 2012.
