Six retailers cited for selling alcohol to minors
June 06, 2014, 05:00 AM

Six Daly City retail businesses received criminal citations on Saturday for selling alcohol to minors, according to police.

Daly City police Sgt. Matthew Fox said officers issued the citations during a compliance check of 21 businesses in collaboration with the North County Prevention Partnership.

Fox said the goal of the checks is to ensure local retailers are in compliance with California State law by properly checking identification of anybody purchasing alcohol, and that no alcohol is sold to anyone under age 21.

A total of 21 business checks were completed, and during those checks, there were six locations where an employee sold alcohol to a person under 21, Fox said.

In addition to the employee citations, the owners of the six businesses where alcohol was provided to minors will receive administrative action from the California Department of Alcohol Beverage Control.

Fox said data shows that regular compliance checks within communities are an effective way of preventing youth access to alcohol.

“These details are an important part of our overall partnership in educating businesses as well as enforcing laws pertaining to underage drinking,” Fox said in a statement.
