Menlo Park: Two cited for buying minors alcohol

 

Two adults were cited for misdemeanors after they bought alcohol for a minor decoy working on behalf of the Menlo Park Police Department on Thursday, March 26, police said.

While standing outside a liquor or convenience store, the decoy asked 61 adults to make a purchase, according to the report. Police said decoys must "be under the age of 20, must have the appearance of a minor, cannot wear clothes or jewelry that would make them look older, and must answer truthfully if asked their age."

The penalties for those cited include a minimum $1,000 fine and 24 hours of community service, according to the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.

The operation was funded through grants from the California Office of Traffic Safety and the ABC.

IT seems like money/time resources could be better spent stopping all the robberies in the neighborhood.
