HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) - Clerks at nine businesses in Henderson
have been cited for selling alcohol to minors during a sting operation in the southern Nevada city.

Henderson police say they made alcohol compliance checks over the weekend at convenience, liquor and grocery stores. Community
relations officers worked with underage volunteers to test the businesses.

Sixty-four of the 73 stores didn't sell alcohol to minors.

Clerks at the other nine stores face a maximum penalty of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine. Owners of a business that fails a second or third time could lose their business license.

Henderson officials say the operation is part of an ongoing effort to keep alcohol out of reach for minors.
