LSPD Conduct Alcohol Sales Enforcement

January 18, 2014

On Thursday, January 9th, the Lee’s Summit Police Department conducted its quarterly 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 nine clerks 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. The business clerk plays an important role in preventing underage alcohol consumption by completing one task, verifying the age of the purchaser. If the business clerk 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 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 store clerks in the following locations:

900 block of NE Colbern Road – Rush Hour

800 block of NE Rice Road – Sunny’s BP

1800 block of E Langsford Road – Caseys General Store

300 block of SE M-291 Highway – Gas Mart USA

800 block of SE M-291 Highway – Quicktrip #162

600 block of SW Jefferson – Traffic Jam BP

3300 block of SW 3rd Street – Longview Phillips 66

900 block of SW Oldham Parkway – 7-11 Food Store

900 block of NW Chipman Road -- Presto
