ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany-Dougherty Drug Unit served a search warrant at an Albany convenience store Friday.

The drug unit arrived at about 5:35 p.m. to raid Liberty Food Store on the 400 block of West Oglethorpe Boulevard.

29-year-old male Hiteshkumar Jayantilal Patel was arrested for selling alcohol to minors.

According to officials, Patel is related to the owner.

The owner was arrested a few weeks before the incident for obstruction, after refusing to provide officials with Patel's information.

The store can still operate, but Dougherty County Police will push to revoke the owner's liquor license.
