Longview, TX (KETK) — One Longview retailer has been cited for selling alcohol to a minor during a Longview Police Department sting operation.
On Thursday, May 30, Longview police, partnering with the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) and Longview Partners in Prevention (PIP), conducted off-premise minor stings at area retailers to validate compliance with Texas law prohibiting the sale of alcohol to minors.
20 different alcohol retailers were checked by the undercover team.
Of those 20 retailers, one of them sold alcohol to the undercover minors.
The location that sold to minors was:
- 1. 611 E. Marshall Ave
At this location the individual that sold alcohol to the undercover minor was listed in an offense report for “making alcohol available to a minor”. This offense is a class “A” misdemeanor and the report will be filed with the Gregg County District Attorney’s Office for prosecution. In addition, the TABC issued an administrative citation to this business.
