YUKON — The city’s police department this month conducted alcohol compliance checks on businesses to determine whether clerks are selling alcohol to minors, citing employees at four stores for violations.
Officers had people younger than 21 attempt to buy alcohol at 36 businesses throughout the city.
On Thursday, Yukon police released the names of four businesses where clerks sold alcohol to the decoys.
They are Homeland at 2400 Cornwell Drive, Route 66 Wine & Spirits at 365 E Main St., and Circle K stores at 1301 S Cornwell Drive and 1100 Lakeshore Drive.
Each clerk was given a $551 citation for the violation. The results will be sent to the Alcoholic Beverage Laws Enforcement Commission.
Yukon Police Chief Gary Wieczorek said he is pleased only four businesses failed the compliance check, but he’s also disappointed that everyone did not "comply with the law to deny alcohol to minors.”
The operation was funded by a $33,000 grant from the Oklahoma highway safety office.
The grant money will be used to conduct traffic checkpoints and other alcohol compliance checks throughout the year.
