WASCO, Calif. - Three businesses in Wasco may face alcohol sanctions because of allegedly selling alcohol to minor decoys.
During the month of July, Detectives with the Kern County Sheriff's Office, working in cooperation with the State of California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control conducted several alcohol related investigations throughout Kern County.
Decoy operations in the City of Wasco resulted in the arrest of 33-year-old Tanyia Gonzales, 22-year-old Andrea Cavazos and a 17-year-old, all from Wasco, for sales of alcohol to a minor.
In addition to the arrests of their employees, the La Nortena Bakery at 1000 F St, Wasco Chevron at 2033 Highway 46 and Amigo’s Meat Market at 829 Highway 46 may face ABC administrative sanctions due to their employees selling alcohol to minor decoys.
Detectives also conducted a zero tolerance undercover enforcement operation at the Kern County Raceway which resulted in the arrest of 19-year-old Alexandria Banning of Bakersfield for being a minor in possession of alcohol.
These enforcement operations are made possible through grant funding provided to the Kern County Sheriff's Office by the State of California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.
The State of California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control is a division of the State of California Business, Transportation and Housing Agency.
