Twelve packs and 18 packs of Coors Light and Coors beer share space in a cooler in a liquor store. In Sacramento, four people were arrested on suspicion of furnishing alcohol to a minor in a decoy operation.

Folsom police alcohol sales sting results in arrests

Published: Monday, Dec. 23, 2013 - 8:19 am

A Folsom police decoy operation designed to cut down on alcohol sales to minors resulted in four arrests on Saturday.

During the undercover operation, a person younger than 21 years old, under the supervision of detectives, attempted to buy alcohol. The minor did not use false identification and answered truthfully if asked about his or her age, according to a police press release.

The decoy obtained alcohol from the Chevron station, 1020 Riley St., Walmart, 1018 Riley St., Churchill Arms Pub, 649 East Bidwell St. and Lexington Food Market, 316 South Lexington Drive.

Four people were arrested on suspicion of furnishing alcohol to a minor. The penalty if found guilty is a minimum $1,000 fine and 24 hours of community service.

Minor decoy operations are one strategy in cutting down on underage drinking. Folsom police also plan to conduct “Party Patrols,” seeking out large gatherings where minors drink, such as in homes and public areas such as parks and parking lots.
