The sheriff’s office said that clerks at 11 establishments in Lake County were cited for selling alcohol to minors during compliance checks this past month.
The Lake County Sheriff’s Office said they routinely conduct alcohol compliance checks at liquor-selling establishments in Lake County.
“The compliance checks are designed to ensure businesses vending alcohol are not selling to anyone under the age of 21,” Lake County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Chief Christopher Covelli said.
Of the 54 establishments tested in the past month and a half, 11 of them sold alcohol to someone under the age of 21.
The clerks in violation were ticketed for selling liquor to a minor. They are required to appear in Waukegan court.
Covelli said that notice of the violations was sent to their respective liquor commission jurisdictions.
