THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Three Thomasville businesses were fined and one license was suspended for 60 days for selling alcohol to minors.

Jack Rabbit Foods on Smith Avenue and Pit Stop on U.S 19 were both fined $500.

Flash Foods on U.S 19 was fined $1500 and its license to sell alcohol was suspended for 60 days. It was Flash Foods second offense in the past 12 months.

The busts were made during the summer when some stores failed Thomasville Police department's mystery shopper program.

Nine businesses were busted in all, both convenience stores and restaurants.

More fines and suspensions will be made in future meetings for the other stores.
