Alexandria Business Alcohol Compliance Check Results

 

On Thursday, March 14, Alexandria police conducted alcohol compliance checks at several businesses throughout the City. This awareness and enforcement campaign focused on various retail business locations that sell alcoholic beverages. Prior to the enforcement efforts, uniformed officers visited businesses throughout the City and provided education and awareness information for the businesses and their employees.

 

Officers used confidential informants under the age of 21 but above the age of 18 to purchase alcoholic beverages from various locations. The informants were instructed to enter the businesses and attempt to purchase alcoholic beverages. If asked for identification, the informant showed the clerk their legal identification, which revealed they were under 21 years of age. If the sale of alcoholic beverages transpired, officers entered the business and placed appropriate charges on the seller.

Forty businesses were checked and six arrests were made for the illegal sale of alcoholic beverages to a person under the age of 21.

The following businesses at listed locations illegally sold alcoholic beverages:

Harris Teeter - 4641 Duke Street

Giant Food Store - 530 First Street

24 Hour Express Mart - 4007 Mount Vernon Avenue

7-Eleven - 1025 W. Glebe Road

7-Eleven - 3421 Mount Vernon Ave

Giant Food Store - 425 E. Monroe Ave
