Undercover Alcohol Sting Nets Five Citations
In an effort to keep beer out of the hands of minors, the Elizabethton Police Department conducted an undercover sting in their city. Officers asked a person under 21, but over 18 to go to different businesses in the city to try to buy alcohol. The would-be underage drinker was able to purchase alcohol at five different locations throughout the sting. Go Grocery, Bonnie Kate Café, The Smokehouse BBQ Company, Beef O’Brady’s and Lakeo Steakhouse have all been cited and were issued a criminal summons for selling alcohol to a minor. All five are scheduled to appear in court on December 3rd.
