Guymon Police Conduct Compliance Check of Alcohol Sales at Convenience Stores
01/04/2010

Guymon police conducted a compliance investigation into alcohol sales to minors on New Year's Eve and four (4) of the ten (10) convenience stores checked sold to the minor with three (3) of the four (4) stores being repeat offenders according to the police.

"We sent a minor into the convenience stores and employees at four of the stores sold to the minor and did not ask for identification and were not asked their age," stated Guymon Chief of Police Eddie Adamson.

According to the information received from the police, an underage informant purchased low point beer at Zippy's Convenience Store, Wes-T- Go Convenience Store, Kent Kwik, and Mary Kay's Convenience Store on New Year's Eve while plainclothes officers viewed the sale to the minor.

Chief Adamson further stated, "Our Detectives conducted this investigation and will be delivering paperwork to the District Attorney this week to determine what charges will be filed on the individuals who made the sales and will also be reviewing any action to be taken against the businesses who have done things of this nature before."

In February 2009 the Guymon Police conducted a similar investigation and employees of the Wes-T-Go Convenience Store, Kent Kwik, and Mary Kay's Convenience stores sold alcohol to a minor at that time as well.

In the state of Oklahoma the first offense for the sale of low point alcoholic beverages to a minor is a misdemeanor charge punishable by a fine of up to $500 and one year in jail. In all of these cases the alcohol sold was low point beverages.
