Undercover sting nets nine arrests

July 15, 2005

Valdosta - Eight Valdosta businesses were caught selling alcohol to customers under 21.

Those were J-P's bar, M and M Food Mart, Loco's Deli and Pub, Ruby Tuesday, Baytree Food Mart, Bayou Bills North, El Toreo, and Flash Foods Number 10. Nine store clerks and bartenders were arrested in the sting.

Police say they'll continue these undercover investigations to cut down on underage drinking in their community. "The intent of the law is to keep alcohol away from minors and if we can do that then hopefully, they won't consume alcohol and get themselves in trouble or get caught driving under the influence," said Capt. Brian Childress.

The police department notified the Department of Revenue about the arrests. They'll decide whether or not to issue separate citations against the licenses of those businesses.
