Summer crackdown: ATC agents double alcohol sales compliance checks

BATON ROUGE (WAFB) - Agents with the Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control conducted 6,598 compliance checks during its Summer Crackdown and issued 895 citations.

Of those citations, 505 were issued for alcohol sales to a minor and 390 were issued for tobacco sales to a minor. The agents doubled the number of summer compliance checks from last year.

“The fact we are using only 16 and 17-year-old operatives and getting this many sales is concerning. Let me be clear--there is nothing good that can come out of selling alcohol to a minor. And if you do, ATC will hold you accountable," said Commissioner Troy Hebert. "This permit is a privilege, not a right."

Around the ArkLaTex, dozens of businesses were cited. They are:


In Benton: Fred's Store #1533 and Food Junction; in Blanchard: Cliff's Country Corner; in Bossier City: China Inn, Chinaberry's, Daq's Wings & Grill, Tamolly's Mexican Restaurant, Red Lobster #664, The Cellar Fine Wines & Spirits (2 on Benton Road); in Cloutierviille: Highway 1 Grocery & Market; in Coushatta: Silver Dollar Liquor (2); in Doyline: Powell's Grocery; in Haughton: Dixie Mart 18 (2) and Pilot Travel Center #199; in Logansport: Logansport Truckstop; in Mansfield: Mansfield Golf & Country Club; in Many: J&J One Stop (2) and Market Basket #8 (3); in Minden: Sibley Road Chevron and Family Dollar Store #8618; in Natchitoches: Quick Stop #1 (2), Turner's Gro; and Easy Stop; in Plain Dealing: Elon Food Mart #14 (2) and Langston's Kwik Pak (2); in Ruston: Jefferson Corner (2), Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar, Grab It 1, Ronin Steak and Sushi House, Maple Mart (2) and El Jarrito Mexican Grill and Cantina; in Shreveport: Super 1 Foods #626, Cuban Liquor Co Inc, Sake Sushi Restaurant, Rite Aid #7330 (2), East Ridge Country Club, Fresco Market & Deli, Lakeside Grocery & BBQ (2), Lakeshore Drive Food Mart (2), N Market C Store, Raceway 6731, CVS Pharmacy #5360, Circle K #8179, Zippy Liquor #470 (2), Day & Night #91, Excelmart One, Speed Way (2) and Brookshire Food Store #37 Gas Station; in Vivian: Tom's Market; and in Zwolle: Blues Barn, Kapri, Lakefront Grocery, Kwik Trip (3) and Lakefront Grocery.
