MCSO SAYS ALCOHOL COMPLIANCE CHECKS THROUGHOUT THE COUNTY WERE 100%

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

On August 07, 2014 MOBILE COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE along with A.B.C.  Agents, ran alcohol compliance checks in South Mobile County to see if any stores were selling to underage minors.  In the operation a minor certified through the A.B.C. Board was sent into twenty three stores in an attempt to purchase alcohol.  MCSO Deputies reported that ALL twenty-three stores complied with Alabama State Law in NOT SELLING alcohol to a minor.   “We created awareness in this community several years ago that if you sell to an underage person, we will arrest you, make the owner of the establishment pay a hefty fine to the State and if they continue to sell possibly loose their liquor license,” says Sheriff Sam Cochran.”This has made the store owners educate their employees, the employees take responsibility for their actions and Underage Drinkers know that Businesses and Law Enforcement are working together.”
