An undercover beer buying operation conducted by local authorities resulted in two businesses being cited for selling beer to a minor.
The operation was conducted by the District Attorney's office, McMinnville Police and the Warren County Sheriff's Department.
A total of 53 businesses were approached by an 18 year old undercover operative attempting to purchase beer. District Attorney General Lisa Zavogiannis said of the 53 businesses, only 2 illegally sold beer to the 18 year old.
The two buisnesses that sold were Pump and Pay East and Fiesta Ranchero at the McMinnville Plaza. The clerks who made the sales will be assigned court dates and the businesses will likely face the local beer board.
Local law enforcement officials commended the business owners and their employees who checked IDs and refused to sell to the agent.
