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.
