From page A3 | June 26, 2014 |

FAIRFIELD — An alcohol sting conducted by Fairfield police at 19 businesses produced a single alleged violator – the 7-Eleven Store on Phoenix Drive where police said a clerk sold beer to a minor.

The clerk was cited in the Saturday incident.

The case will be forwarded to the Solano County District Attorney’s Office for prosecution of the clerk and to California Alcohol Beverage Control for further action concerning the store’s liquor license, police said.

Fairfield Police Department’s Crime Prevention and Youth Services Unit conducted the alcohol sales compliance checks to ensure compliance with the law. These checks have proven to be an effective method of preventing unauthorized sales to minors, police said.

Compliance checks were made possible through a grant of funds by the Solano County Board of Supervisors.

    Okay, one is good. I'd rather they "waste" resources on alcohol than cigarettes. Stay after it.

    1 store is not bad at all. Revoke their licence for years like you all did food and liquor and then there will be 0 stores selking to minors. They really cleaned up that problem.

    Depending on the age of the violator, maybe we need to reexamine the drinking age and bring it back down to 18. Then all we would have to worry about is the school students that try to buy.

    How many police were paid overtime for this extra curricular activity. One out of 19 arrests indicates they are wasting valuable time and money. Go do something more important.

    You people complain when nothing is done, then you complain when something is done, what do you want? instead of always complaining about this and that, step up to the plate and tell us how you would deal with crime and other illegal situations in the town. Either step up with smart ideas or just step down off the soap box.

    A sweep for license plates would be nice. Got a legal rear plate? Registration current? Got a front plate too? Numbers match? Probation/parole status of registered owner?
