CINCINNATI -- Six liquor stores and a handful of the people who work there are busted for selling booze to underage buyers.
On July 15, the Cincinnati Police Department Vice Unit conducted random checks of liquor establishments in District 5 to see if they were in compliance with state liquor laws.
"We've had (complaints) where your child goes out, gets alcohol from a location and gets in trouble, gets arrested," said Cpt. Paul Neudigate. "The parents are calling and they want something done because they feel that contributed to the situation the child found themselves in."
As a result of the sting operation, the following individuals were cited after they were found selling liquor sales to persons under the age of 21. Three of the six locations are on Hamilton Avenue.
Each store was issued at least one citation.
