The Quicky Mart in the seven hundred block of south virginia....further down the street an AM-PM, Jackson's near plumb on Virginia Street, the Terrible's Chevron near Longely, The Shop and Go on south Virginia--all were cited for selling alcohol to minors...part of the 42-percent failure rate seen last night by the street enforcement or SET Team. We talked to Sgt. Brent Teasley in front of another liquor store cited last night..the Fireside.
"That's really bad, in our units four years that's the worst failure rate we have ever had."
Teasley says the idea is to get liquor stores to comply and save lives. Teens drinking alcohol is nothing new, but the sting program hopes to make it tougher for juveniles to get alcohol. We talked to two students who say where there's a will, there's a way.
"You can pay an adult, and a lot of times they will go in even if they are with their kid they will go in and buy you alcohol."
" A lot of kids zones they will ask but out downtown they probably just won't ask for it."
For many of these stores this was a first time offense. While some of the clerks did not want to talk to us on camera they did say for them it was a momentary slip....and would never knowingly sell to teens.
