SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - Sioux Falls police made a compliance check of 27 off-sale alcohol businesses yesterday and two clerks sold to the underage buyer.
Officer Sam Clemens says the two Casey’s General Stores on South Sycamore both failed the check.
Clemens says so far this year there have been three liquor compliance checks and four businesses sold to the underage buyer. He says detectives will continue doing these compliance checks and every business is checked at least twice a year. Clemens says while low numbers are good, hopefully, Sioux Falls off-sale stores can get to a string of 100% compliance.
Clemens says clerks that sell to a minor are issued a citation that comes with a mandatory court appearance.
The businesses may face fines, suspensions or loss of their license.
