SIERRA VISTA, AZ - Sierra Vista police say several businesses were caught selling alcohol to minors during a recent operation by the Southeastern Arizona DUI Task Force.
The Sierra Vista Herald-Review reports that more than three dozen restaurants, hotels, convenience stores and other establishments were targeted, based on previous liquor violations, citizen complaints and other factors.
Employees at seven out of the 38 businesses were found to have sold liquor to an underage buyer, whose ages ranged from 16 to 19.
Those who sell liquor are typically cited for selling alcohol to a minor and failure to check the identification of a minor.
The Arizona Department of Liquor Licenses and Control is notified when businesses are cited.
