21 or Bust: Businesses Pass Alcohol Test

 

Sobering news from the Boulder City Police Department: all of the businesses it targeted in an underage alcohol buying sting passed the test.

Officers sent underage volunteers into a handful of businesses with the intent of buying alcohol. If the clerk or alcohol server requests a form of ID, the person presents their real Nevada identification card/license, indicating their true age.

Clerks or servers that sell alcohol to an individual under the age of 21 receive a citation for Furnishing Alcohol to a Minor, which results in a bail of $637. No one sold alcohol to the underage people.

The stores tested were:

  • 7-11 Gas Station/Convenience Store, 1004 Nevada Highway
  • 7-11 Gas Station/Convenience Store, 900 Utah Street
  • Albertsons Grocery Store, 1008 Nevada Highway
  • CVS Pharmacy, 800 Buchanan Blvd.
  • Eric’s Smoke Shop, 1020 Nevada Highway
  • Shell Gas Station/Convenience Store, 1004 Nevada Way
  • Sinclair Gas Station/Convenience Store, 1625 Nevada Highway
  • Vons Grocery Store, 1031 Nevada Highway
