Store alcohol license permanently revoked

August 31, 2005

Albany -- A Dougherty County convenience store has it's liquor license revoked permanently. The Express Lane at 3000 Sylvester Road will not be able to sell liquor again.

The Georgia Department of Revenue revoked the stores license, after it was caught selling alcohol to underage buyers for the fourth time since March 2004.

 This Express Lane store had it's alcohol license suspended for 20 days in April for selling to underage buyers. Then undercover officers bought from them again April 30th, just days after getting their license back.

Law enforcement says other stores better get the message. Dougherty District Attorney Ken Hodges said "We will continue to put businesses out of business that sell alcohol to minors. This is the first, and we are excited about it. But we don't want it to happen again."

 Dougherty County Police Chief Don Cheek said his officers will continue to do undercover checks on the Express Lane, to make sure they are not selling any type of alcohol.

 He says the store will not get their license back.
