Underage-Drinking Sting Nets Two Violators in Worcester 1

WORCESTER – A Worcester Police Department underage-drinking sting operation earlier this week resulted in liquor license violations by a pair of local businesses selling to underage minors.

According to the WPD, on Tuesday, Feb. 6, the WPD’s Alcohol Enforcement Unit worked with two underage local college students -18 and 19-years-old – in a sting operation of thirty local package stores and restaurants. Of the thirty businesses, the minors were able to purchase alcohol at two locations.

These stings are periodically conducted throughout the year, and this sting, according to the WPD, saw more compliance by local businesses that compared to past operations.

The purpose of an underage sting operation is to bring awareness to business owners about the consequences of selling alcohol to underage customers and patrons.
