Six San Luis Obispo businesses sold alcohol to a minor
October 20, 2010
The decoy was in possession of a valid identification and was told by police to tell her correct age if asked. Decoys are a tool used by law enforcement agencies to deter sales of alcohol to minors.
The businesses were Edna Valley Shell on Broad St., Laurel Lane Liquors on Laurel Lane, 7-Eleven on Marsh St., Scolaris on Johnson Ave., University Gas on Monterey St. and 7-Eleven on California Blvd.
The clerks face a maximum fine of $250 and/or 24 to 32 hours of community service for a first offense. It is up to the ABC and the courts whether to impose fines, suspend or revoke business’s liquor license.
