Fayetteville, Fayette County
Clerks at seven stores in Fayette County were cited for making under-age alcohol sales in a sting operation conducted by sheriff's deputies and the West Virginia Alcohol Beverage Control Administration, the county sheriff said.
The Jan. 11 sting operation involved attempts to make under-age purchases from 32 alcohol retail establishments, and seven sold alcoholic beverages to under-age minors, according to a news release from Fayette County Sheriff Steve Kessler.
Kessler said clerks were cited at the Ansted Shell Store, Dorsey's Hogtails in Hico, the Hico location of New River Foodland, the Hico location of Sherry's, Drifter's Bar in Glen Jean, the Cold Spot in Glen Jean and Sam's Place in Mount Hope.
"Selling alcohol to under-aged minors is entirely unacceptable, and we are always pleased to work with the WV ABC in efforts to deter this illegal activity," Kessler said. "These alcohol stings are performed several times per year in Fayette County, and are always conducted in cooperation with the state's ABC agents."
These violations remain under investigation by the sheriff's department and the ABC.
