Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington went out of his way to point out the large number of stores who were in compliance. Saying in a release:
“We point out those stores and clerks who commit a crime by selling alcohol to underage buyers, and we want to do the same in a positive way for those stores that do the right thing. Compliance with the law and safety of our young people is our goal.”
The store who did not pass was cited for selling alcohol to a person under the age of 21.
