Three Omaha businesses are facing consequences for selling alcohol to a minor in a recent compliance check operation done by the Nebraska State Patrol.
Compliance checks were conducted by the Nebraska State Patrol at 29 retail outlets in Douglas County on Thursday, November 14th.
Of the 29, three businesses sold alcohol to a minor. All three are located in downtown Omaha, Omaha Prime Restaurant, Omaha Mining Company and the Zin Room.
The retail outlets checked included convenience, liquor, and grocery stores as well as restaurants and bars.
The compliance checks are designed to make sure businesses who sell alcohol are following the law and not selling to underage youth.
Compliance checks in Douglas County were conducted thanks in part to a $2,920 grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety (NOHS).
