New York State Police regularly hold compliance checks for several area convenience stores, liquor stores, bars and restaurants. This is done to ensure employees at those places are not serving or selling alcohol to underage individuals.
State Police recently conducted compliance checks at several locations in Oneida and Herkimer Counties. Out of the 11 businesses there was one arrest made due to an underage sale of alcohol. State Police say the following businesses were dropped in on to make sure they were following all the laws regarding alcohol sales.
