The Crowley Police Department – Compliance Division recently completed a compliance check on local convenience stores for sales of alcohol to persons underage.
“During this compliance check, 13 stores were visited with a person who was between the age of 18 – 20 years of age. The goal is to confirm that the clerk checks the identification of the person and denies the person the sale of alcohol” stated Chief KP Gibson.
Of the 13 stores checked, 3 were found to not be in compliance. Those stores were Fatboys on West 2nd Street, Korky’s on Western Ave and Express 90 on East 2nd Street. The clerks who sold the alcohol at each store were issued a summons for unlawful sales to persons underage.
“These checks will occur periodically and we want to assure our citizens that we are working to prevent our youth from unlawfully drinking as well as our stores for unlawful sales” stated Chief Gibson.
