Press Release -- Alcohol Sales Enforcement March 2019

LEE’S SUMMIT POLICE CONDUCT

ALCOHOL SALES ENFORCEMENT

 

 Lee’s Summit, Mo. – On Saturday, March 23rd, 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 29 retail locations were checked, with eight clerks/servers 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.   

Citations were issued to clerks/servers in the following locations:

800 block NE Woods Chapel Rd. - QuickTrip

900 block E Langsford Rd. - Hy-Vee Gas

600 block SW Jefferson St. – Traffic Jam Convenience

3300 block SW 3Rd. St – Longview Phillips 66

900 block SW Oldham Pkwy – 7-Eleven

300 block SW Ward Rd. – Rush hour

900 block NW Chipman Rd. – Presto Convience Store

200 block SE Grand Ave. – Cloud 9 Liquor & Tobacco

 

The following locations refused to sell/serve the underage decoy:

1100 block NE Douglas St. – Temp Stop

1600 block NE Douglas St. – Douglas Valero

900 block NE Colbern Rd. – Rush Hour

800 block NE Woods Chapel Rd. – Summit Cellar & Spirits
