Eleven metro businesses have been cited in the aftermath of alcohol compliance checks conducted by the Nebraska State Patrol.
The checks were conducted on Thursday and Friday, August 15 and 16. It covered 106 alcohol retails outlets in the Omaha metro area. The patrol says 11 of them sold to minors.
The retail outlets checked during the collaborative effort included convenience, liquor and grocery stores as well as restaurants and bars.
Law enforcement performs compliance checks to ensure that businesses are complying with the state’s alcohol laws and to decrease youth access to alcohol.
The compliance checks were conducted thanks, in part, to a $5,840 grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety (NOHS).
