Alcohol Compliance Checks

On Thursday, May 12th and Friday, May 13th, the Martinsburg Police Department and the Alcoholic Beverage Commission conducted alcohol compliance checks at area businesses utilizing a minor under the age of 21.   The alcohol compliance checks were paid for by the United Way through a substance abuse grant.  In total, 21 businesses were checked for alcohol compliance and 14 were found to be in violation.  Clerks who sold alcohol to minors were cited for Unlawful Sale of Alcohol by Alcoholic Liquor Licensee, a violation of Martinsburg Municipal code 521.04(d)(1)A.  If convicted, persons found guilty are subject to a fine not more than $500, or imprisonment not more than 30 days or both.
