Four Washington County businesses caught selling alcohol to a minor

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON COUNTY, OR (KPTV) -

Washington County Sheriff’s Deputies found four businesses failed during an undercover compliance mission.

The deputies worked with the Washington County Explorer Post, where teenagers attempted to buy alcohol from stores in Washington County.

On Friday December 4th, ten businesses in the eastern areas of Washington County were visited by a 19-year-old explorer.

The explorer was supervised constantly by a sheriff’s deputy, and showed their valid ID if requested by the clerk.

Out of the ten businesses checked, four sold alcohol to the underage explorer.

The stores include the Raleigh Hills Liquor Store on Southwest 76th Avenue, the Fred Meyer on Southwest Beaverton Hillsdale Highway, Hall Mart on Southwest Hall Boulevard, and a Cheveron on Southwest TV Highway.

The clerks who sold alcohol to the minor were cited for Furnishing Alcohol to a Minor, which is a class “A” misdemeanor and carries up to a $5,000 fine.

The OLCC will also follow up with the owner of the business that sold alcohol to the minor.
