Albany - 10 more Albany stores are punished for selling alcohol to minors, and this time the punishment was harsher.

This morning, Albany commissioners suspended the alcohol license of two stores, the Jack Rabbit Food Store on Dawson Road and Woodall's on North Slappey. The store can't sell alcohol for 37 days and must pay a $600 fee to have their license reinstated.

8 other stores received a letter of reprimand from the commission. More than 30 Albany stores sold beer to an underage police officer, during a crackdown on underage alcohol sales early this year.

The Jack Rabbit and Woodall's received harsher punishments because this was their second violation.
