SPARKS, Nev. (AP) - Sparks Police say they hit several local businesses with tickets for selling alcohol to minors during a weekend undercover operation.

Authorities say they used an underage volunteer Sunday to try buying alcohol from 13 northern Nevada businesses. Three of the stores sold alcohol to the volunteer.

The sweep was funded by a grant through the "Join Together Northern Nevada" initiative against substance abuse.

Police say employees who sell alcohol to minors face a minimum fine of $632. Businesses where employees are not trained through an alcohol education course face fined of $500 to $5,000.

Businesses that violate the rules also jeopardize their license to sell alcohol.
