BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Police sent teens into local liquor stores to try and buy booze Thursday night.
It’s designed to check on stores and see who is selling alcohol to minors and who isn’t.
The state says about 20 percent of the time the clerk fails and sells booze to a minor.
It’s a ticket and a huge fine for the clerk and the store and the store is put a watch list.
If they fail two more times in a three year period the state will yank their liquor license.
The operation was paid for with a grant from the state.
