Sunday, June 10, 2018

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. — During the evening hours of Thursday, June 7, 2018, Investigators with the Nebraska State Patrol conducted alcohol inspections in Perkins and Chase Counties.

The project was supported in whole or part by Grant # 93.959 under the SAMHSA Center for Substance Abuse Prevention, Region II Human Services, and the Nebraska DHHS Division of Behavioral Health.

In total, ten businesses were inspected. Two businesses sold alcohol to a minor for a non-compliance rate of 20%. All ten of the businesses checked the minor’s ID.

The businesses which failed the inspections were:

Tequila’s Mexican Grill – Imperial (checked ID, sold to minor)

VFW #4688 – Imperial (checked ID, sold to minor)

The businesses included convenience stores, restaurants, golf courses, and bars. NSP conducts alcohol inspections in an effort to keep alcohol out of the hands of minors.

Businesses which fail the inspections are referred to the Nebraska Liquor Control Commission and clerks who sell alcohol to a minor are cited for procuring alcohol for a minor.
