WCSO targets underage sales of tobacco and alcohol

Warren County Sheriff's Office

The Warren County Sheriff’s Office conducted a focused enforcement effort regarding the sales of alcohol, tobacco, and vaping products to underage people.

Deputies from the School Resource Division coordinated with a trusted young adult to conduct compliance checks on 12 local businesses.

Only 3 of those actually properly checked ID and disallowed the sale.

These businesses were thanked for their compliance while clerks at the other stores were issued a summons.

The sheriff’s office plans to continue these compliance checks through the summer.
