Alexandria Police Conduct Business Compliance Checks

On Friday, June 17, officers conducted business compliance checks to identify establishments that sell alcohol to minors.  This operation occurred as part of the ongoing Youth Alcohol/Business Compliance enforcement campaign.  Underage police department representatives, dressed in plain clothes, entered the businesses and attempted to purchase alcohol.  If asked for identification, the buyer provided his Virginia Driver’s License that showed he was under the age of 21.  If the sale of alcohol took place, then the store clerk was charged appropriately.  

As a result of this operation, 18 establishments located throughout the City were entered and seven arrests were made.  All persons arrested were charged with a Class 1 Misdemeanor for illegally selling alcohol to a minor.  Businesses checked included convenience stores, drug stores and grocery stores.

Anyone with information about a business selling alcohol to minors is asked to call the Alexandria Police Department at 703-838-4444.
