2 Hudson Valley businesses Sold Alcohol to Minors, Police Say
Workers at two Hudson Valley businesses allegedly sold alcohol to minors.
On Saturday, New York State Police conducted plain-clothes checks of sixteen retail locations in Dutchess County that sell alcohol to ensure their compliance with New York State's Alcoholic Beverage Control law.
As a result, a 22-year-old man from Pawling and 35-year-old from Amenia were caught selling alcohol to a minor, police say.
The 22-year-old from Pawling works at the Family Quick Stop on West Main Street in Pawling. The 35-year-old from Amenia allegedly sold alcohol to a minor at the Shell Gas Station on Route 343 in Amenia. Both were charged with prohibited sale of an alcoholic beverage, a misdemeanor.
According to the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services, underage drinking is associated with the three most common causes of death among youth, including accidental deaths, homicides and suicides.
Fourteen additional establishments in Millerton, Amenia, Dover and Pawling were checked and found to be in compliance, police say.
