SPARKS — On Friday and Saturday the Sparks Police Department conducted age verification compliance checks at 24 local businesses that sell alcoholic beverages. Sparks police officers, with the assistance of a volunteer who was under 21 years of age, attempted to purchase alcoholic beverages from those 24 establishments. Nine of the businesses sold alcohol to the minor.

Businesses not in compliance:

• Pyramid Liquor, 300 Pyramid Way

• Sam’s Discount Liquor, 676 S. Rock Blvd.

• Fair Deal Market, 1695 Sullivan Lane

• Quick Stop, 125 Salomon Circle

• Shell Station, 295 Sparks Blvd.

• Fuji Japanese Buffet, 5015 Pyramid Way

• C.J. Palace, 129 Los Altos Pkwy.

• Las Trojes, 5272 Sparks Blvd.

• Nugget Casino (Oyster Bar), 1100 Nugget Ave.

A citation was issued to the employees for selling an alcoholic beverage to a minor. The fine for this offense is a minimum of $632. Such an offense can also jeopardize the establishment’s license to sell alcohol.

Citizens are asked to report the sales of alcohol to minors, possession of alcohol by minors or other violations of the laws regarding the use of alcohol by minors to their local police agency.
