Four convenience store clerks were cited for selling alcohol to minors in the latest Rock County Sheriff's Department compliance check.


Captain Jude Maurer says a monitor used minors to attempt to purchase alcohol at 50 establishments. Maurer says of those 50, four violated the terms of the sale by dispensing the alcohol to a minor. The Captain considers the number of violations low, and an indication the compliance checks are working. Whoever sold the alcohol was ticketed with a $438 citation.


The Sheriff's Department says the checks will continue unannounced.
