Alcohol inspections held in Red Willow County
RED WILLOW COUNTY, Neb. -- Investigators with the Nebraska State Patrol performed alcohol inspections in Red Willow County on Sept. 15.
NSP said the project was supported in whole or part by grant #93.959 under the SAMHSA Center for Substance Abuse Prevention, Region II Human Services, and the Nebraska DHHS Division of Behavioral Health.
Officials said a total of 10 businesses were checked during this time. Investigators reportedly found that two of the businesses sold alcohol to a minor for a non-compliance rate of 20 percent but all of the businesses checked the minor’s ID. The businesses that were inspected included convenience stores, restaurants, liquor stores, and bars.
According to NSP, businesses that sell alcohol to a minor are referred to the Nebraska Liquor Control Commission while clerks who sell alcohol to a minor are cited for procuring alcohol for a minor.
