Eight places cited due to selling alcohol to a minor
HUNTINGTON — Eight of 47 Cabell County bars and convenience stores checked by law enforcement officers in February sold alcohol to minors, according to information released by the Cabell County Substance Abuse Prevention Partnership.
The underage alcohol compliance checks were conducted by the West Virginia Alcohol Beverage Control Administration along with The Cabell County Sheriff’s Department, Huntington Police Department and West Virginia State Police through a program funded by the Governor’s Highway Safety Program.
Citations were issued to all bartenders and salesclerks who sold alcohol to underage operatives, according to Craig Shelton, ABCA enforcement supervisor. He called the compliance checks a “perfect example of all local and state law enforcement agencies in Cabell County working together to reduce underage drinking.”
