Liquor Sting Operation Results
posted on January 04, 2018 07:26

On Friday, December 22nd, the Lee’s Summit Police Department conducted a liquor control “sting” operation within the city. The operation targeted retail establishments responsible for following municipal and state law regarding the sale of alcohol to minors.  A total of 27 retail locations were checked, with two clerks being cited for an illegal sale.

During the operation an underage decoy will enter the business and attempt to purchase alcohol while wearing recording equipment to verify actions of both the decoy and business clerk/server.  The business clerk/server plays an important role in preventing underage alcohol consumption by completing one task, verifying the age of the purchaser.  If the business clerk/server refuses to sell then management receives a letter congratulating them on the appropriate action of their employee. 

If an illegal sale is made a detective with the Special Investigative Unit will enter the business, after the decoy exits and issue a citation for the sale of alcohol to a minor.  The clerk/server has the primary responsibility for verifying age which is why they receive the citation and not the business.  If repeated violations do occur at a particular business Missouri State Liquor Control may initiate disciplinary action against the businesses liquor license.

900 block E. Langsford Rd. – HyVee Gas
